The low lights behind the scenery I've seen a number of times, but usually used for either sunrise, sunset, or night effects. Not so mush a daytime effect as on the Bar Mills layout, where the effort in those pics goes a bit un-noticed.

Have seen blue rope lights used for a night time horizon glow, or a dark orange rope (or paintd fluro even) for nice sunset/sunrise glows coming over the horizon.

Its other use is to try and wash out backdrop shadows from the main light source, created by foreground trees and structures, but I've usually been able to work around this problem with the backdrop painted to suit where those shadows might fall.
