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

D401 MHS: An Interesting Lynx in Stafford

 Midland Red North at Stafford had a number of interesting Leyland vehicles including Leopards and Tigers with a variety of bodywork. Not to be forgotten were also some unique Alexander N bodied Lynxs which had been tried by Citybus of Belfast which ran from here and as well as some conventional examples but these included yet another trial bus as 1016 was bought by Kelvin Central on behalf of the Scottish Bus Group. As no orders followed I think it remained the only Lynx to operate with them till it's sale in 1991. They had their faults but lack of speed wasn't one of them hence the distortion on this shot of D401 MHS as  hurries down the Tixall Road toward Stafford from the Heywoods.
