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

In Switzerland Mercedes-Benz buses seem to be everywhere and as I shot this one as I had a few minutes to spare in Wattwil. Had I come at another time I might have seen an FBW because they were still running here till the late Nineties and wishing I had alighted earlier I followed the progress of one of them from the train as we lumbered our way towards Uznach. Although the bus belongs in Saint.Gallen the routes travel into three cantons and they are displayed at the front.
