You want to make your own skybox?
http://www.planetside.co.uk/terragen/

Or you just want a standard night-time one?
In Hammer, got to Map->Map Properties... and set environment map to "night" or another valid skybox name. Here are some CS sky names:

would you just do func_train, and set the angle to 90?

Heres a screen of my shaft....





I just want so when you press the button, it activates the lift, so if you press it at the top, it'll go down, and when the press the button at the bottom, it'll go up....

func_train is correct but you need to place some path_corners for it to follow. Tell the train which corner to start at too. If you add an origin brush to your elevator (func_train) then it will match up with the path_corners at its origin.

DO NOT USE path_track IT IS FOR func_tracktrain WHICH IS NOT FOR ELEVATORS.

NO, just tie one Origin brush in with the func_train wherever you want its origin to be.

When you tell the train to go to a path_corner, it will go to it such that its origin is at the path_corner.

No, Zim, not that kind of corner.

path_corner is like a corner on a road, not the corner of a room.

Use a path_corner at each stop along the elevator's path. The origin of your elevator will line up with each path_corner as it goes to each stop.
