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

Maybe because it was one of the 'red and cream brigade' Trent was a BET company often overlooked by enthusiasts but as long as I can remember it has always turned out smart buses. Even when it was nationalised as part of the NBC there always seemed to be a pride in the fleet, and now combined with Barton it has something more to be proud about as there are the few survivors left as the majority of large bus companies now have disappeared into the Stock Market listed faceless large holdings like Stagecoach and Arriva. This photo was taken in 1989 in Burton on Trent and the Leyland National2 and ECW-bodied Bristol VR typified the stock inherited by the newly re-privatized Trent
