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

Winterthur trolleybus carrying Seen: So well spotted

Lausanne opened in 1932 was Switzerland's first trolleybus system followed by Winterthur in 1938 and Zurich a year later. When I visited Winterthur in January 1990 the thirty-five strong electric fleet included ten rather stylish looking Saurer/FHS/Stromberg trolleybuses Nos.122-131 dating from 1983.
