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

Arriva: Cannock delta Way
During the Easter Holidays I had to go through Cannock so I decided to take a quick peep to see what was in the yard at the local Arriva Depot. The K-Reg Dennis Falcons bought new in 1992 are still in service in Shropshire but 1989 examples that came from London and Country and North Western were parked up and presumably withdrawn. Also in this view is with a similar East Lancs body a former Grey Green Volvo and a little Dart new to Midland Red North that was waiting for a new engine. Oh and I almost forget there's a former London Routemaster RML that the company keeps for publicity purposes.
