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

Gelterkinden: Garage Spare
Just ahead of Aarau, Gelterkinden was the last main PTT Regie Garage to retain a 100% Saurer RH fleet as the Engineer didn't like those new fangled German machines from Mercedes and Setra. Of course this was fine by us the enthusiasts because these the Rolls-Royce of Swiss buses were our choice too. But as a bonus like other garages there was often something extra to photograph like this officially withdrawn 1968 Ramseier & Jenzer bodied Saurer DUK P25561 photographed on a grey day in January 1991.
