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

Let it Snow, let it Snow!
As I write this there is no need to travel to Switzerland to find a total covering of uninterrupted white snow as Britain is enjoying a cold snap too. Of course as travel more or less grinds to a halt in U.K we wonder why it is that we can't cope with a few centimeters of snow when our European neighbours just take it in their stride. In this scene that resembles an arctic white-out the only thing that stands out against the whiteness of the snow and the grey sky and buildings is the bright yellow Post Bus which is always there and departs on time whatever the weather. This view was taken as the Zurich to Chur train halted in Wangen and maybe some of it's passengers were about to take the Saurer RH bus to it's home base the small town of Uznach.
