In this episode we are going to take a look at how to use the Routing Engine that is part of the Asp.Net MVC framework to allow us to preserve old or dead routes in order to not break external links.

We will walk though create the new route, watching it hit our new controller action then finally testing the new route to ensure they both work.  By the end of the session we will have two valid routes that both render the same view
