Brought one of the smaller ones the other day to increase the space to put all my locos and also the pre orders which are all due out sometime in the next 2 years lol, must say impressed with the quality of these, I brought a few months back a big display cabinate for about £60... I think the ones Lidl are selling are better in quality.

They have been sold by Lidl several times over the last few years, so keep getting the leaflets and wait for their return.

After missing out on the recent Parkside Soldering Station I have subscribed to online notification from both Lidl (Ireland) and Lidl (Northern Ireland). Sure enough I get weekly notifications (nothing appeals yet) but at least I should be aware of future offers.

The Parkside soldering station is an excellent piece of kit and very cheap. It has made my other irons redundant so I might get Gostude to sell them for me on E-Bay -

I've been using the 'Parkside' soldering station for a while now, I have to admit for the money it's a class bit of kit. Used it to rewire my old M7, removed the hard wired chip from a Hornby 'Jinty' and for some heavy work rewired the big old 12amp battery charger, and the new driving lamps for the 1600E.

Anyone who's on the lookout for an adjustable soldering iron (100c to 500c) get one, you'll be glad you did.

Might be of use to some... Was in Lidl yesterday, and they were selling fake grass mats (green fur basically) for about 6 quid, was 2m x 1m. Might not be to everyones taste, but for those working on a budget it could look okay.

Cheers,

Morning all,

My local Lidl (in West London) has stocked up on the display cabinets again, the larger one being reduced in price to 49.99 I recall, so may mean that other stores will have them too. Not going to get them myself, but I know other chaps on here have been on the lookout.

Cheers,

Jimmy
