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

Lynx with the past
Sadly here in Stafford we no longer find buses coming in from the Arriva garage at Burton on Trent because the former Stevensons Uttoxeter service has been integrated to run as an extension of the Heywood's Services run from Stafford. The local Arriva Lynx is almost extinct now and although most examples came via the takeover of Stevonson this bus came from Arriva's Yorkshire Bus as the former Caldaire Group which owned West Riding and Yorkshire Woollen District were keen buyers of the type.
