I've been beta testing this Do-It-Yourself Backdrop maker and wanted to let everybody know that it is a fantastic 'utility' thingy. jost62 has done everything for you and all you have to do is add your own picture to make it work. I was amazed at how easy it is to use.
1. Invisible backside so you can see through it to your route.
2. Height adjustable so you can make tall buildings or a low countryside.
Should be on the DLS next week. If you can't wait, I can send it to ya. His readme file basically releases all ownership and you can use it as freely as you want.
I promised him I'd help spread the word...
Here's the basic thread at Urine that started it all; http://forums.auran.com/trainz/showthread.php?t=15371
