ActivityMaster is a new utility for Microsoft Train Simulator,
that gives users more control over all their MSTS Activities, including the
Weather, Season, Start Time, and most importantly, all rolling stock (cars and
engines) used in the activity. It sells for $14 US.

downloads, and rolling stock inventory. NEVER DOWNLOAD ANOTHER PIECE

- Put the cars and locomotives you downloaded and purchased to work in
ANY activities you have!
- Download and run activities from any author, WITHOUT downloading any

Gausden's great freeware Shape View utility (used with Paul Gausden's
permission, THANKS PAUL!). You can get the free Shape View program
(Skyline Computing does not re-distribute this program).
