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

The 53 Bus: Something new for Selkent

The major groups tend to move buses around so it's much harder to get attached to them never mind have individual buses as firm favorites. In the Metropolitan areas there is a lot more incentive for these nationwide operators to allocate their newest stock here and especially so when the routes have been tendered out both on price and quality as in London. Even so some dragged their feet but The Stagecoach Group right from the very start has always effected a proper fleet renewal policy and many of these new buses like this 1995 Northern Counties bodied Volvo Olympian would probably find it's way out to to places like Exeter or Grimsby in the Provinces
