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

Sunday in Thun: Yes Saurer, but they are not DUK's
In 1990 the Swiss town of Thun (STI) still had a few Saurer buses but despite the presence of similar named water-fowl these were not the once common under-floor engined DUK built between 1962-1973. Because of their more recent age and rear mounted engines these are much more like the PTT's greatly lamented RH type buses built between 1978-85. Apart from my interest in Post Buses I'm not so hot on other Swiss buses but these might have been of the type SH.
