So I purchased TS2009! My friend Chris got it, so I figured I would get it too. As I posted in a previous post, I do have TRS2006. I have been working on a very long route there. Initially I was trying to create the CP Mainline in Canada throught the Rockie Mountains. However, I decided that I was going to just build the route in an ad-hoc style, with a general plan. I was worried about transferring my route over to 2009, but it seems to have been fairly seemless. TS2009 promises much better graphics and detail. Higher resolution is possible for textures and such. I have yet to play around with any of the higher resolution textures or objects, however older maps and objects which used to cause lag, seem to run smoothly now. At this point, I am glad I purchased TS2009, and will be contuning my work on my route when I have the chance to work on it. A deeper and more involved review will follow shortly.
