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

Carlyle Dart: Save Me!

It seems to be the end of the road for this the oldest bus at Arriva's Stafford Garage which is a pity as it was only taken off the road after the Ministry pulled it up because of an oil leak. Always a popular bus it always looked in excellent condition and various people think it ought to be saved. I agree because these attractive early Carlyle bodied Dennis Darts were never common and this one found it's way to Arriva having started life with Williamson's on the Shrewsbury Park and Ride. Now it stand awaiting it's fate minus blinds at the bottom of the garage yard parked up against the fence.
