Since Train Simulator was first released as RailWorks we have continued to improve the core game and introduce ever more detailed routes and locomotives.

The 64-bit conversion will allow content creators to add even more content and detail to their scenarios, routes, and trains.

With this in mind in order to run each and every item available with the performance intended you’ll need to meet or exceed the below requirements.

Whilst you may be able to play and enjoy the game with a lower specification system we cannot guarantee each and every route will be playable without performance issues.

How do I check to see if I have a 64-Bit compatible system?

To check if your system is ready for the 64- bit conversion, press the Windows Key on your keyboard and press the Pause/Break key.


(if you don’t have a Windows key on your keyboard, you can find this information within Windows 10 by clicking Start > Settings (the gear icon) > System > About).


This will display a pop-up dialog like the one pictured below.



Under System type, it will say something along the lines of “64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor”.


If yours matches the image above then you’re ready for Train Simulator 2020 64-bit as your system has a 64-bit CPU and operating system already installed.


Please note that to truly benefit from the 64-bit version you will need to have greater than 4GB of installed memory (RAM).


If you see something like “32-bit Operating System, x64-based processor”, then you’ll only need to upgrade your operating system to a 64-bit version to become compatible with the 64-bit conversion.


Windows 10 users can upgrade from 32-Bit to 64-Bit for free by following Microsoft’s guide located on the site below: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install/how-to-migrate-to-windows-10-64-bit-from-32-bit/40d90c4e-8845-4bcb-bb2f-aeab312caf74?auth=1


If it says “32-bit Operating System, x86-based processor”, then you’ll only be able to run 32-bit Train Simulator 2019 with your current hardware as your CPU will not be compatible with a 64-bit operating system.
