Well after waiting for the holidays to be over, I have managed to get some distilled water, and my rolling road arrived this morning. I aquired a LS Mallard set before Christmas, one of the later manufactured models, all complete and never been used. You can imagine my frustration, having the set and not being able to use it, due to the lack of stockists that sell distilled water,fortunatly I have found a marvelous model shop (2K Technologies ) in Hipperholme that stock virtually everything that is left of the LS spares and the elusive distilled water. This morning armed with everything needed to run the Loco, I set about putting the control,transformer and rolling road on the kitchen table, while my wife was occupied dusting in the front room. I connected evrything up, filled the tender with water and the Loco with Oil, turned on the power and hoped that it worked. Success not only did it build up steam, it worked brilliantly and was responsive to the controls, I was a little apprehensive, after reading some of the story's of other peoples first attempts with LS. Now to get on with building a layout, and looking for more Loco's to add to the collection.
