Located near central Ohio USA is Dover, part of a bigger region where billowing black clouds of smoke dot the skies in earnest to forge a country’s greatness. A proto-lanced route, Ohio Steel (Dover Division) is similar to its real-life counterpart with many enhancements added for entertainment value – but make no mistake, you’ll be railroading in one of the toughest and harshest environments a railroad engineer could experience.

Ohio Steel – Dover Division recreates 3 branch lines from the real Dover Division – the Eastern Branch Line to Dover Steel Mill, the Southeast Branch Line where most of the traffic is focused and the 11-mile Stone Creek Branch Line.
