Being 14 (15 on Sunday) I haven't access to a credit card, cheque or postal order. This is a problem also because I'm in the UK. Can anyone tell me how they got it without using the credit, cheque or postal order and is there another way?

Popping down to your local PCWorld (or other PC games supplier) will bag you TRS2006 (Just trains version) for around 40 pounds.

May be cheaper, im not sure.

I'm not sure My PCWorld (Monks Cross York) stocks such a game :D :(
The Auran Website says $40 AUD and then postage and packaging. equivloent to about 30. But as I said before problem there. Anyone else?

@Coolmatty : go to your local Game store, they are selling TRS2006 for 9.99 or part of the 2 for 15. I went and got two copies of TRS2006 for 15 so myself and a friend at work only paid 7.50 each :p :)

No, $20 = £10.13.

Don't get it from a shop in the UK, it'll be a Just Trains version and require the disk to be in the drive to use it. Talking to Mike is definitely the way to go.

I agree with Andy

DONT buy the "Just Trains" version get the real thing via Mike. I had the "Just Trains " version and had to replace it so I got one via Mike and have had no problems since

Matt:-

You should be able to buy a postal order (for cash) at your local Post Office - assuming that it hasn't closed ;)

There is a fee payable, but I don't remember any age restriction on them. You could always ask parent/guardian/significant other :confused: to buy one for you -
Much safer than trying to send cash!

The US stores (and OZ) look attractive, but that does need a credit/debit card and one needs to be careful (as always with Internet shopping)

Hope it works out,

Colin

Right, I'll go out and get a postal oreder then. Do they charge a fee for it or is it just the amount of money you are trying to put on?

Thanks Mike. Could you please repeat how much each was. It doesn't have to be here but can it be by PM right now? I'm not at home so can't pick up email right now.

There doesn't seem to be an age restriction but does anyone know for certain?
