download the beta-version of TrainzMeshImporter from Auran (http://www.trainzdev.com/ -> Wiki -> Downloads, you need to be registered to access the wiki), extract the archive andd copy the file TrainzMeshImporter.exe into Blenders script folder("BLENDER_INSTALL_DIR\.blender\scripts")

I have made it to here as far as installing blender. When I try to go to the above link for the exporter and create a user I get an error "Internet explorer cannot display the webpage" Is this page still in use, or can I get the TrainzMeshImporter somewhere else? Any help would be app. as I would like to start to contribute to the DLS.

Where did you find the above link? Just so we can correct it.

Wikibook Trainz

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Trainz/Software_Used_for_Content_Creation

has this link

http://online.ts2009.com/mediaWiki/index.php5/Downloads

Which is the correct one.

If its not showing in the list of exporters it sounds like you haven't got the scripts in the right place. Have a look through here.
