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

Surely Not: An LT RM going to West Didsbury?

London Transport was pleased that so many operators found their redundant Routemasters such a useful marketing tool in the heady days of Deregulation but on the other hand they were not happy when they were turned out on to the streets in red and branded as London Buses as happened at Manchester. Two of them with GMT pass the ill-fated Arndale Centre on the 143 which heads down the busy Wilmslow Road, a local competition hot-spot with lots of student accommodation to generate traffic.
