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

Nykoping: Danish Classics
The small town of Nykoping with it's typical Danish railway station on the island of Lolland provides rather a good backdrop for this rather attractive Scania carrying the name of that even smaller town's local Independent heading home to Nysted not far away. It has attractive bodywork named after the town where they were built called Ringsted. Also at work is a Leyland based 1970's DAB town bus which is probably owned by the local railway company like the ubiquitous later red liveried Aabenraa Volvo all working happily together under the umbrella of STS the local area transport authority.
