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

A 'Single' to Wolverhampton
Although this view of the bus station in Wolverhampton was taken two years ago it still illustrates the single-deckers one might see there. All these Optare Excels belonging to WMPTE are allocated here and the Arriva former Timeline garage at Shifnal. houses several of the unusual East-Lancs bodied Dennis Falcon bought in the Midland Red North (Drawline) days. One is inclined to say that buses these days look very much the same but in reality as you can see they can be very different, maybe it is those diverse liveries and type variety that is sometimes lacking.
