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

Bangor: Crosville Cymru Leyland National 2

Even though the English part of Crosville in Cheshire quickly became part of PMT after it was split in two and sold, the wilder more romantic and more rural Welsh part seemed to keep that bit more of the traditional character alive complete with a strange green and white livery that seemed horrid at first but slowly grew on you. Both PMT and Crosville Cymru kep't the old numbering system going for some years and this secondhand former Merseyside National 2 seen one Saturday in1999 in Bangor shows that it is a Single deck-National-Gardner SNL 94
