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

Sale of Twenty-five year old Stagecoach Atlantean GBV101N

An interesting time to visit Blackburn was in about 1999-2000 when as part of the deal when selling it's under-performing  local East Lancashire area services to newly formed Lancashire United an extra amount of elderly vehicles were included which their new operator planned to replace. Most were former NBC Ribble stock but more unusual was this rather elderly former Preston Atlantean from 1975 which had been ancient by Stagecoach standards.
