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

Alexander Dash-Stagecoach Midland Red South

As well as West Midlands Travel, Stagecoach are a familiar sight at Birmingham Airport and typical of the buses I used to see was this small Dennis Dart bound for Atherstone on the 777, not to be confused with the National Express 777 which also calls here. I like my picture choice to be appropriate and this is as I am about to go to Elmdon as it used to be called on a job, and the name of the Alexander bodywork reminds me I really must Dash!

One of the best paintschemes I've ever seen...

By the way, Stagecoach old paintscheme, do you have any photo that you want to share with us?

Thank you!

Best regards.

Yes I will find you something, but this current livery is much nicer. Indeed where other big groups like First and Arriva are a bit drab Stagecoach has that tradition bold magic that makes small boys look twice.
