Additions have been made since the initial shutdown and the site now covers 1830 -> 1880. It will not proceed further until more playdates data has been filled in for the current range and maps upgraded. Get involved.
A new membership programme is being incorporated. Contributors are those who wish to donate data, don't want to be too involved, but would like to follow certain parts of the system and be advised of updates, etc. Researchers are those who want to be more involved and have access to all the internal benefits of the system. This level requires weekly upkeep.
Public viewers will still have complete access to all regular data. Members just get to see the background processes and on-going research.

From Stuart Thayer, American Circus Anthology, Essays of the Early Years
Pentland’s 1854 route included the canal route from Albany out to Buffalo, a month in Ontario,
and a trip through Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Obviously, Pentland spent much longer than a month in Ontario
