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

A nice 1970's German Railways (DB) Setra in Geisen from the days when they still had plenty of brightwork.

Maybe it still state of the art.
In fact, since the 70's and Setra, there's not so much to tell about bus developement.
What you see there, is a bus with independent suspension on thre front axle and a self.supported chassis [from which came the SETRA brand].
Great! Really nice!

Greetings from Portugal,
keep on with this nice weblog!

Thanks for your comment CJT it is very much appreciated as there are times when I feel why should I bother when peple are just too lazy even to say 'Hello' or add something. Fortunately I usually get 500-600 visitors a week so it's not a total waste of time thankfully.
