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

PTT Setra Bendi or Gelenkbus

For it's Post Bus fleet the Swiss PTT tried two of these Setra SG 221 UL articulated buses in 1986 at Nesslau. But obviously they were not a great success as future orders were for small batches of more basic Mercedes O405G and the two trial Setras were moved to Sion where they enjoyed undemanding lives travelling along the gentle valley floor to Ardon a route that follows the railway, the main highway and the River Rhone towards Martigny
