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

One Pretty Girl and one 58: A Coimbra Lancia Trolleybus

The bodywork built by Caetano on a number of Lancia trolleybuses delivered to Portuguese systems in the Eighties have such an unpretentious boxy appearance like a building and strangely enough they looked almost attractive.

These trolleybuses were made by efacec/Salvador Caetano in the mid-eighties

And they are a completely different model of the Lancias that run in Oporto.

The Oporto Efacec trolleybuses also had a diesel engine to run in case of electrical failure.

Great pics ;)
