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

Saurer RH at Sion

Even though in PTT days the local allocation was fairly standardised towns like Sion could boast a fine array of different buses in Post Office Yellow. Although the PTT had some of these too, even the ubiquitous Saurer RH's carried a different style of bodywork to the State owned fleet. Also owned by local Contractors the Mercedes Benz and Setra coaches at either side illustrate the most numerous marques as outside urban areas bought off- the-peg coaches seemed to be preferred to expensive high-specification Swiss buses.
