The list of downloads below relate to TRS2004 (preferred) and TRS2006 download and enjoy if you are able.

Installing TRS2004 Windows 10/11
In order to run TRS2004 (or TRS2006) on the latest windows you need to perform a few changes to the ‘EXE' files that run Trainz.
- Go to C:\program files (x86)\Auran\TRS2004 with windows explorer
- Right Click on TRS2004.exe
- Click in the ‘Compatibility' tab
- Select ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for:'
- In the drop down select “Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
- Click the ‘Run this program as an administrator'
- Click ‘OK'
The ‘Configure Trainz' option needs fiddling as well. This is what works for me, you may need to twiddle the settings from one to another and restart multiple times to have the launcher work.
- Use OpenGL
- Display resolution 1024×768
