    I'm a gold member too and not planning to stop that anytime soon. CurrentlyTRS19 is the best Trainz version in my opinion, I am happy with my Gold Membership.

    I can understand where you are coming from clam1952. When I had read that it was only the Gold subscription members that were now the beta testers, it was bit of a hit to my solar plexus. It is a choice on my part to either subscribe or purchase right out. I did the latter (and also purchased on Steam), so my coin would get added to kitty for the development of Trainz. As I spend most of my time in my surveyor with my wip route, the subscription way was not for me. I personally have nothing against the sub but I do feel I am now an "obsoleted" beta tester because of my preference which I feel pretty sad about.

    It was great "meeting" the authors when beta testing and seeing the results of the other testers. I could only do a small portion because of my knowledge, but was impressed with the talent of the authors and the other testers. It was a very cool learning curve and corresponding with some of the devs (whom were/are very patient) was a pleasure to be part of. Sorry if this all sounds a bit wispy.

    As clam1952 has said "life goes on" and now my wip route building will hopefully see the light at the end of tunnel.

    I strongly suspect that they will still need "non-subscription" beta testers for the next version of Trainz (TRS21) - the one that comes out as a "mainstream release" with the TRS19 "bells and whistles" enjoyed by the "gold-plated set" plus all the new TRS21 data features. Then the process will begin again with new interface features for the "TRS21 Goldies".

    for the current subscribers i would just do what you are doing and ignore the ones trying to give dozens of reasons just to buy the sim, as i have stated i could buy the sim at 70.00 many times over but i still prefer the 15.00 to support n3v. do whats best for you and forget what everyone else thinks. just my opinion.

    Yes this could be a possibility alright . Oh well, it is what it is.
