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

As one would expect a country that is proud of it's railways should have honoured them with some fine architecture and the small city of Luzern was no exception. Sadly the old stone railway station was destroyed by fire and replaced by a modern glassed square one with lots of basement shopping facilities but at least the imposing entrance which survived the blaze was retained as a monument. As well as it's own motor and trolleybuses Luzern also uses contractors vehicles too in it's own livery including the R & J bodied NAW in the background. Volvo buses were favoured by the undertaking like this B10M No.53 seen in the early Nineties. A lot of these LU 15000 series registrations seem to be carried by various buses.
