There are two options to choose from to install TRS2019, the Offline Installer (aka the Full Installer) or the Online Installer.

You can find the steps to access your download on the Downloading TRS2019 page.

After you have downloaded Trainz, you will need to install Trainz using the steps for the chosen installer.

Online Installer

The Online Installer is a much smaller initial download, which will then download the files for Trainz during the installation. This option is generally recommended as it will download individual files to install Trainz, rather than a single very large file.

4)The default location will then be shown, similar to the above (Note, the install folder will be 'Trainz Railroad Simulator 2019' rather than 'Trainz A New Era'). If this is a new install, click next. If you already have an install of TRS2019 on your computer, your installer will show the following warning.

We recommend that if you see this warning, you click cancel and then change the name of the folder to something different (ie 'Trainz Railroad Simulator 2019 2' or similar).

When you are happy with the install location, click next.

5)You will then see the below screen, please enter your MyTrainz account's username and password into the boxes provided, then click next.

NOTE: Your MyTrainz username and password are case sensitive.

6)You will then see the below screen which shows your 'patch stream'. Please ensure this is set to 'Stream: TRS2019 - Early Access'. If so, click on Install.

NOTE: If your patch stream is shown as anything else, then click on 'Change Stream', select the 'TRS2019 Early Access' option, and click ok.

7)The installer will then check the version online. Once this is done, it will show you the version and build of Trainz that will be installed.

If it shows 'TRS2019' (it may also show a build number) then click on Install.

8)The installer will then begin downloading Trainz. This may take some time, as the installation is quite large. Once it has downloaded Trainz, it will automatically begin installing.

Offline Installer and Boxed Editions

The Offline Installer (AKA the Full Installer) contains the entire Trainz software within the installer, and will not need to download further files to install Trainz.
