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

Tittensor: A Taste of Winter Chill
At least the yellow driver-training livery stands out and adds a bit of cheer as PMT Willowbrook bodied leyland Leopard passes through Tittensor heading towards Stone on a horrible wet and snowy day back in the winter of 1979-80. In the background is the large premises of Bassetts of Tittensor, once also a well known PSV operator bus now it sadly only concerntrates on the main haulage side of the business. These ten Leylands and another ten outwardly similar AEC Reliances were PMT's first 36ft long single-deck buses in 1962.
