Adjustable trestles

Noticed in Lidl this morning some Powerfix Adjustable trestles for £14.99.
A number of preset height so not infinitely adjustable out of the box.
Has anyone used this, and is how easy to make infinitely adjustable?

Re: GWR Steam Railmotor Chassis

Hi Jeremy,

Looks like you're building up a head of steam now!

Will you be attending Railwells on Sunday?

If you are, would it be possible for me to purchase a railmotor chassis c/w bogie, and also is it possible to purchase an extra 8' bogie?
