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

Buses &Trolleybuses in Neuchatel

Situated on the lake that carries it's name the historic town of Neuchatel is one of my Swiss favourites. It also has been operating trolleybuses since 1940 and when I visited there in 1990 many of the twenty-four of these vehicles were wearing a newer version of it's traditional livery including seen in the background No.165 a 1983/4 Hess bodied FBW BBC-SAAS whilst more modern vehicles included this Volvo motorbus No.220.
