I AM CHRISTOPHER LEACH THE ARTIST. I started this blog so that I can share with everyone my vast collection of transport photographs showing a personal and nostalgic view of the industry with images that span some 45 years taking in the U.K and some of Europe. I have no darkroom and so rather than being the perfectionist after tidying them up I upload the images warts and all, and even those that won't scan squarely or are scratched. In a way it adds age and character. You are all free to download these for your personal use but please remember I still own them and you are not just free to use them without prior permission for any knd of publishing. Click on images to enlarge them and if you want to see more leave your comments or visit my website for the mother-site with galleries including those Buses & Girls: PICTUREWORLD

Warstone's Green Bus: Leyland PD3
Seen in the mid-nineties despite considerable tree damage this former Stockport Corporation East-Lancs bodied Leyland PD3 still looked awe-inspiring in Warstone's immaculate dark green and yellow livery. This interesting Independant has had it's wings clupped in more recent times and it lost a number of routes including this one from Wolverhampton to Rugeley via Cannock and Hednesford which employed traditional half-cab double-deckers.
