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

More from Warrington two weeks ago
Rather like when panning for gold where one might find the tiny valuable nuggets at the bottom when it comes to gems of buses they too are usually hidden away out of sight down the bottom. This is certainly the case at Warrington where they hold on to a fine relic of the Sixties, a Corporation rarity a 'Special' 1965 Leyland Titan PD2.40 with a narrow 7.ft 6.in wide East Lancashire bodywork. Now carrying both fleet-numbers 50 and 148 it was originally the first of a batch Nos.41-52. As elsewhere the Dennis Dart figures widely in this fleet and two different styles by Marshall of Cambridge can also be seen here down by the back gates of the Wilderspool Causeway Garage.
