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

1990: Lausanne's Finest

When I think about Lausanne's trolleybuses belonging to TL I tend to think of this long lived batch dating from 1964 and numbered from 657-679. It might be something to do with my remembering them from my school days but these FBW's with their locally built Eggli bodywork were certainly fine looking and much admired beasts. Following down the hill was a typical later vehicle with much a more square fronted profile by Hess. 1984 No. 743 was also an FBW, but the following batch of similar looking trolleybuses were all built by NAW.
