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

MCW Metrobus and Metroliner

As well as the familiar Metrobus like Cricklewood based T47 seen here working for London Transport at Victoria Metro-Cammell of Birmingham also built the Metroliner double-deck coach. Most went to National Express and received the manufacturer's own coachwork but Yorkshire Traction recieved five Plaxton low-height vehicles including the last one pictured here No.95 that was delivered in 1985 at C95 KET.
