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

Trolleybuses: Lausanne's Finest

Not surprisingly my favourite Swiss buses are the ones that were in service when I was at school there between 1963 and 1965. But these elegant Lausanne FBW trolleybuses with locally built Eggli bodywork are a hit with many enthusiasts and despite their age still managed to look more modern than many of the newer buses with their square profiles. In September 1990 No.669 still managed to look both smart and sunny despite the Summer Showers.
