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

Arriva: Rebodied Dart

In Stafford we don't get buses from the Arriva Garage in Burton any more as we do it which is a pity as it brought in a bit of variety including on this occasion M804 MOJ one of four Marshall bodied Dennis Darts delivered to Shrewsbury where three were painted in a special livery for the Park-and-Ride. The others came to Stafford excepting the former MRN No. 804 that found it's way to Burton-on-Trent where it was involved in an accident and received the new body seen here.
