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

Chaisso: A welcome to Switzerland
In Summer 1990 an interesting line up of Swiss buses await foot passengers in Chaisso who alight the train or cross over from Italy just yards away. The red town bus was a recent Swiss-Built special Mercedes marketed as a NAW but much older FBW's were still at work here too, and as well as a narrow Mercedes Post Bus marketed as a Vetter by the German Bodybuilder a fine Saurer RH could be witnessed too operating services along narrow roads up the mountainous hillsides where you would expect to find Post Buses..
