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

PTT; A real rarity

Well this batch of buses might have been an extremely rare sight in the more populated urban areas of Switzerland as the batch P23321-330 dating from 1991 was confined to the narrow roads of the mountains where they ran from Chur, Thusis and here at Scoul. However what made P23324 a very rare sight indeed was the fact that by Swiss standards it was filthy. The warmer weather had obviously caused a thaw making the roads very mucky with a lot of mud mixed in with melting snow but I'm sure it would stay dirty for very much longer as the PTT were most proud of their spotless yellow buses.
