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

PTT Bern: An odd stranger in the camp

In February 1998 I had to get as far back as I could to squeeze the front of this interesting bus into my camera picture lense as this neat looking new arrival coming to join the local Post Bus fleet at Bern looked rather out of place alongside the more usual large Mercedes O405 buses. Dating from 1990 this Renault Ponticelli/Gruau MG36 bus had just been acquired from (or most likely with) one of the Post Office Contractors (PAH) and would shortly surrender it's Bern Cantonal Registration for a Post Office Mark carrying P22021.
