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

Basel 2000: The last of FBW Trolleybuses
In 2000 Basel Route 34 was converted to motorbus operation and out went these 1975 Hess/SAAS bodied FBW machines and the pair of Mercedes-Benz-Gelenkobusse 921-922. In the distance is one of the final generation of trolleybuses delivered between 1992-1996, 923-934 built by Neoplan which continued to work on routes 31 and 34.
