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

Einer Frau im Frauenfeld

Traditionally in Switzerland Post Buses parked in an easy welcoming fashion close to the trains but by the time I stopped going they moved them further back maybe showing their diminished national icon status. With about twelve vehicles the early-Nineties Frauenfeld PTT bus fleet comprised almost solely of these standard Mercedes-Benz 0405 buses but there was also a MAN midi-bus and later as elsewhere the odd dial a ride 'PubliCar' minibus arrived on the scene too. I'm a bit of nostalgia fan and after looking at some early Post-War photos of the very different bonneted Saurers taken on this spot I'm pleased to say that at least this tree that cast shade over them still looks just the same.
