    Default Trainz 2006 vs Trainz2004

    I have a few questions about the two.

    1) Are these two versions compatatible with each other?

    2) Is there an upgrade for 2004 to 2006? Or, you have to start anew?

    Thank You.

    Assets (rolling stock, buildings, signals, track, etc) are largely compatible between the two programs - but not quite everything I suspect. Scenarios are definitely not compatible, they only run in TRS2004.

    TRS2004 and TRS2006 are separate programs. There is no update path from one program to the other except purchasing the full version of the other program. You can have both installed on the same computer at the same time (with a need for a small technical tweak to switch downloads between the two). Each program does have its own separate upgrade path within its own service packs, TRS2004 up to SP4 and TRS2006 up to SP1 at the moment.

    Hope this helps, John

    Not entirely true....over time I've got 15 scenarios from 04 that work for me in 06...lost count on how many don't...

    Getting TRS2006 SP1 stuff (certanly layouts) to work on TRS2004 takes major brain surgery and even then may not work, or so I have read.
