August 18, 2009 | Comments Off on Trainz “Lifetime” First Class Ticket

A First Class Ticket for Trainz allows us to skip bandwidth restrictions and download items quicker. I was surprised to see them offering a life time subscription for $82.50. That’s a lot of change! Their yearly subscription rate is $19.99 and for the lifetime subscription to be worthwhile, the Trainz brand should be viable for 4 more years. In the gaming/simulator world, 4 years is a long time. One does not know what will happen to Trainz in the next 4 years. $82.50 is a pretty steep commitment!

Their 3-month to 1-year subscription range from $9.95 to $19.99. My take on this is that you could save a lot by taking a 3 month subscription and downloading all items/routes you like. Save the downloaded content or burn it into a CD or DVD. You can do this once a year and thus save some money while getting all the items/routes you’d like.
