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

La Chaux de Fonds: Bright Sunshine after the Snow
Although this photo was taken in 1997 both FBW motor buses and trolleybuses were still hard at work in the town of La Chaux de Fonds in The Jura close to the French Border when I last visited Switzerland in 2000. With poles seemingly coming out of it's roof at first glance No.154 at first glance looks like a trolleybus but it's easy to spot the difference as Swiss electric vehicles do not carry Cantonal Registration Plates.
