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

Atlanteans Gone in Plymouth

For many years the Plymouth City Transport fleet was all double-decker and comprised entirely buses of Leyland manufacture. Atlanteans followed Leyland Titan PD2's in 1960 and unusually like at Nottingham some examples like this bus of 1975 carried the sort of bodywork Park Royal normally supplied to the National Bus Company. Number 78 was photographed outside the large depot at Milehouse.
