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

Berlin: Methanol Bus
In the Eighties BVG in Berlin experimented with methanol as an alternative fuel on this 1982 Mercedes and No.1387 carried the message on it's sides. When still quite new the bus is about to leave one of the smaller garages with about 120 buses at Lichterfeld. Sadly with cut-backs it was closed several years later which was a pity as it was both modern and quite attractive.
