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

Kublis from the train and PAH Hartmann
As one arrives by rail in Kublis they are greeted by the delightful traditional village Swiss Post Garage of the local Licensee PAH Hartmann with chalet style accommodation above. In the mid-Nineties Saurer buses were still in evidence including a former RH from the PTT Regie Fleet itself. Had you then alighted from your train here to catch a bus to Saint Anthonien Platz in 1965 it might well have been another proper Post Auto bonneted Saurer Glasswagon No.P23155 which was being borrowing for the season to work this service.
