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

Don't blame me it was like this when I got it!

This rather battered MCW Metrobus Series1 had travelled about a bit before it reached Merseybus in Liverpool, for even though it was still wearing London Transport colours it in fact started life as one of a small batch of trial buses with Tyne and Wear in Newcastle. Even though they bought a decent number of the Scania based MCW Metropolitan Double-Decker the PTA shied away from this the much more successful down to earth and thrifty Gardner-Engined model that followed it.
