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

UK North: Leyland Olympian

UK North grew quite quickly having started as a cheap alternative operating on the Manchester student corridors in competition with Stagecoach. In reply the bigger operator set up it's own budget service which is how Magic Bus came into being. UK North eventually got into all sorts of trouble but it will be missed as it ran a large assortment of interesting buses like this former Riverside London Leyland bodied Olympian.
