Exactly what does this do if checked? It's in the Options section under Advanced.

Turns off some of the hardware acceleration and reduces performance drastically. Used for older GPU's or drivers that may not support hardware acceleration or cause conflicts I would imagine.

Exactly that - one of the earlier card models from one of the major manufacturers (ATI or Nvidia) had problems with some of the rendering requirements of Trainz. So this option was added to resolve the conflict.

If I remember rightly, some Intel integrated cards also require Hardware TL to be disabled.
