Anybody tried the team Asia side without using teams? Playing it with, say, 2 players? I don't see any reason why this wouldn't work, but am I missing something?

Have not tried it. There are 60 tickets (!) In the game though...so might kind of feel like 1910 mega game

How many trains would each player get? 27, 45 or 54?

I think it could be player just like vanilla T2R with 45 trains per player. Juts like you could apply the team-rules to any of the other boards.

We have tried it, 4 players with 45 trains and 3 Europe stations. We played nicely and every player played at least one station.

They said it felt weird because of the small steps occuring because of the small routes. According to them, it didn't fit with the "traveling" theme.

I've tried this as a 2-player game, just because I got tired of having the map sitting around and not living with enough people to play in teams on a regular basis. It's a fun and generally easy board to play, due to it being more wide open and not having to worry about what unknown goals a partner needs to accomplish. It's probably also less exciting than team play for that reason, but it could work well for folks who like TTR to be a bit less stressful and confrontational. It's definitely more easygoing than playing Legendary Asia with 2, where I've been on both ends of a lot of unintentional sabotage.

One question we had when playing "solo" was whether to use 45 trains or 54. I like racking up tons of points and going for as many tickets as possible, so I had more fun the second time around, when we did it with all 54. If your preferred play style is "Finish your first set of tickets, get the heck out of Dodge, and leave everyone else holding the bag", then you might not like it.
