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

Trolleybuses: Bye-bye Basle

The future of the trolleybus system in Schaffhausen on the Swiss-German Border still hangs in the balance but nearby in Basle following a public referendum it has been decided to replace the eleven Neoplan trolleybuses with gas powered buses later next year rather than to invest more money into the network extending it. When I took this photo in about 1996 one could still see a previous generation of Hess bodied FBW trolleybuses dating from 1975 (911-920) still hard at work.
