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

Making their mark

After the NBC was Privatised the split up and devolved companies had to find their image. Some just modified their existing NBC livery slightly like City of Oxford, whilst others tried to return to the old days like Southdown with it's tasteful apple-green and cream. Others though went for a bold approach which didn't always look good especially on certain types. It certainly did nothing for this Willowbrook bodied Leyland Leopard tackling the wet roads in Newcastle during a summer rain storm way back in 1989.
