What Are Legacy Add-ons?
Legacy add-ons are add-ons which were originally created for Train Sim World 2020 or Train Sim World 2, but can be used in Train Sim World 3.
If you already own add-ons in one or more of these games, you will be able to download the equivalent add-ons in Train Sim World 3 at no extra cost, so long as you are playing on the same platform and account.
However, if you are purchasing a legacy add-on for the first time, you will find it in your platform's store marked with the "Train Sim World Compatible" logo.
