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

Leyland Titans in Torquay
When Harry Blundred took over Devon General he more or less elimated big buses but even he was slowly mellowing to the extent that he was introducing jumbo-minibuses with dual doorways to his fleets. So not surprisingly when Stagecoach took over his network in Devon proper sized buses were soon drafted in from elsewhere and these included still in London red Leyland Titans from Selkent like former T859 seen on a sunny Sunday at Torquay in July 1998.
