A second simulator product that finally arrived in the UK market place in November 2003 is TRS 2004 Railway Simulator This product was originally released as a Community Edition in December 2001 as TRAINZ. Several patches later it was released as a Retail Version. 2002 saw the release of the next version called Ultimate Trainz Collection (UTC). TRS 2004 is the latest version.

Please note TRS2004 is a NEW product and NOT an upgrade to the original TRAINZ or UTC.
