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

I think Neuchatel situated on the lake is about the most pleasant town in French Speaking Switzerland, and like many other places in Summer 1990 one could still find Swiss 'classic' elderly trolleybuses at work like this FBW dating back to the early-Sixties.

That's a nice picture, I was in Neuchatel during 2002-2003, but the older trolleybuses were the FBW/Hess/UST build in 1976.

About the trolleybus in the picture, I'm afraid that's not a FBW but a Saurer. I try to get more information about this TN 140. I know well the president of ARBL (Association RetroBus LĂ©man) that you can visit the website www.retrobus.ch
