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

HT Type DAB BL6-L Ledbusser: Articulated Bus

Copenhagen and other urban centres in Denmark didn't seem to gravitate towards the high-capacity articulated-bus in the way they did in other parts of the Continent of Europe. When I was there in the early Eighties there were two batches of these DAB Leylands with HT mainly coming out in the rush hour to work limited stop commuter services to the north of the city. Later in 1982 another batch of ten arrived this time to work the 33H to the largely residential Amager Island just to the south and where Kastrup Airport is also situated. The batch consisted of Nos 1510-1519 which were garaged at the large garage of Artillerivej on the Island bringing the total of this type in service in the city to thirty buses.
