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

We're off to Clacton

National Express
A busy scene at London's Victoria Coach Station as a 1982 Duple Dominant coach bodied Volvo B10M leaves for Clacton on Sea on the coast of Essex. Also in view is a National Travel (Black & White Motorways) Leyland Leopard also bodied by Duple and in the background a Plaxton Paramount bodied Tiger of National Welsh. It seems strange that whenever one tries to use the National Express website wanting to go to London they seem to give you a list of seemingly everywhere in the Capital except Victoria Coach Station where the coaches terminate.
