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

DSB Aabenraa Volvo 833 & 771
These Aabenraa bodied Volvos were the standard Danish Railway's bus at the begining of the Eighties and four of them are see here in Kolding working the Town Service which when I came in 1979 was still being worked by it's own DAB-Leyland buses. Kolding and Horsens were sub-depots of Vejle with a total allocation of some ninety buses. I have to say like the post Bus I rather like railway buses as they have a rugged big company image and tend to be scattered around the country whichever it may be somewhat disproportionately in little pockets of activity.
