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

Ribble: Titans fall at Aintree.

In the early Eighties surrounded by ECW bodied Bristol RESL's at the bottom of the yard at NBC Ribble Aintree Garage were some of the few remaining but now withdrawn MCW Leyland PD3 double-deckers awaiting the scrap man's torch. A third obviously already cannibalised sister is almost hidden but the other two are 1961/3 Nos.1757 and 1827.
