Processor: AMD-FX-8320E Eight-core processor 3.20GHz
Memory: 8.00GB
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti
249GB available on C Drive
Windows 10 Home, version 1803
The only ones I'm certain with is my graphics card and processor.

TANE / TS2019 really need a GTX 1050 TI or better and ideally a GTX 1060 or better. Having said that it should give roughly he same frame rates as TANE and you can always run it in a window.

I can't speak for your CPU but I have TRS19 running on a 5 yr old i7 system.
Memory: 24GB
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti
Win 10 Home

TRS19 runs just fine, at least as well as TANE SP3 does.

TurfFX works (which surprised me) but I do have to turn down some of the performance sliders to about what they were with TANE. But a great deal does depend on the route you are running.

Most of my TRS19 exploring in being done on another system with a i7-7700HQ CPU, 8GB memory and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card, and it does fly.

ADDENDUM:

Purchasing a copy of TRS19 will be a lot cheaper than upgrading the specs of your current system or buying a new system with better specs. A better option may be to buy TRS19 outright and try it on your current system. You may have to tone down some of the performance sliders (when TRS19 installs it will make some recommendations and, if you accept, it will automatically preset the performance sliders) to get the best performance.

That is what I did with my current 5 yr old desktop system and it has so far saved me the expense of buying an upgraded new desktop until next year.

I see that there's a comparison site for nVidia cards.
It suggests that my GTX 770 is just worse than a 1070, and the GTX 990 is better.
It's likely you can pick up a second user card economically though you'll need to check the power requirements.

Sorry, ColPrice2002 - there's no such card as a GTX-990 (perhaps you meant the GTX-980Ti?) and the GTX-1070 is benchmarked WAY above the GTX-770, which is outclassed by the GTX-1060 in fact.
As you'll see, the GTX-1070Ti is also way faster than a GTX-980Ti.

I have a GTX 980 and it works quite nicely.

If by window, you mean not full screen, then that's how I run TANE. For some reason, if I have TANE running as full screen on my computer, it looks like watching something pre-widescreen TV on a widescreen TV, because it ends up 'stretching' the sides. It looks like I have to talk to my sister as she made the computer I currently use to handle TANE as a Christmas present a few years ago, when TANE first came out. I just sent her a text about how nice it would be for the Christmas present from her would be a new graphics card for Trainz 2019.

I have a GTX 660 and it seems to run 19 pretty good so far.
