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

Digbeth Coach Station
In a way it's a bit sad that Digbeth is going to be rebuilt as a new Coach Station for there are no former Midland Red garages still in use in the area taken over by the West Midlands PTA, but at least it will stand on the same site. The 'National Express' brand is about all that is left from the NBC era of the Seventies but the faster 'Rapide' named coaches are now just a memory too. Here looking a bit upmarket for these duties was a Northen General Leyland Royal Tiger Doyan coach which bore the Registration A722 ANL when new.
