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

Austrian Steyr Bundesbus
Tucked away in a snowy corner of Switzerland with the high mountains of both Austria and Italy seemingly only an avalanche away hardly surprisingly the winter ski resort of Scoul at the end of the Rhaetian Narrow-Gauge Railway enjoys some exotic bus visitors in the shape of the Austrian Railways. Very attractive this yellow and red Steryr looked too bound for Nauders up the valley and just over the Austrian Border as it waited at the local station above Scoul at Tarasp.
