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

Post Autos in St. Gallen
Two Regie Post Buses prepare for departure from outside the railway station in St Gallen. In the background is Hess bodied P24420 the first of the NAW BH 4-23 series of buses bound for Heiden where it was garaged along with P24421-2. At this time in the early Nineties the nearby garage in St Gallen itself, was still reliant on the Saurer RH and particularly this more square looking variant with it's body shape more in keeping with the buses supplied to various PTT Contractors. This was also the longer urban variant of the RH 580-25 found in the more populated areas beyond the mountains particularly in the North East of Switzerland and P25654 was built with R&J bodywork in 1982.
