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

An Obsolete BMMO D9
Not surprisingly few BMMO buses were sold for further bus use but strangely enough seven Midland Red D9's found themselves hard at work on the London Sightseeing Tour in the Seventies as open-toppers. Along with 4902 this bus No.4903 was the first of their type to enter service at Redditch in 1960 and was seen after it entered service with the Obsolete Fleet making it's way through Chelsea.
