restore sql database-generate restore script from files in folder

Very often I have a request to restore sql server databases from production to out test environment for a couple of out DB servers.  Every DB servers are having around 10-15 databases on it.
Format of the backups are : DB1_backup_201305151900.bak.
When I have a request  I restore this dbs from tape to one folder on the disk, and after that I have to manually restore them. It's really a hard work and I need to automate this somehow.
If it is possible to generate a restore script from the files in directory?
The problem that need to be solved also is that db file location in production are located in drive D: and E: and on test environment only on disk E:

Hi Qlemo, 10x for your reply.
I've already checked this article. The problem with this script is  that it is only for one database, and I am having 10-15 databases in the folder. Also it does not provide the option to move database( on my production server databases are located on the D:\- data files  and E:\ - log files), and on test servers they are all on one drive D:\
