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

It's hotting up: Plymouth Bretonside

and Western National buses resting between duties but coaches from far and wide. In this view we can see a During the Eighties during the Summer Months by Mid-Morning as the heat of the sun started to heat up all that Fifties concrete Plymouth Bretonside Bus Station used to fill almost to it's capacity with not just Plymouth CitibusLeyland Leopard which despite being in full National Express livery had been working on a bus service. I have it marked down as a North Devon vehicle which the low fleet number 282 seems to concur.Also in this busy scene are a couple of Duple-Bodied coaches, a Ford belonging to Jones Travelways of Market Drayton in Shropshire and just arriving, much newer Laser on a Leyland Tiger chassis and the milkman.

There's something odd about that Leopard/Supreme. I don't recall any North Devon "Red Bus" bus routes into Plymouth. Its fleet number "feels" like a Black & White (which it is, or was when new). Could it have been on an Express from Cheltenham?
