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

Chur in the early 90's: Afternoon Departures

One can almost imagine those older buses that used to gather ready for departure outside the traditional looking station buildings in Chur. But now in Switzerland buses like P26023 on of the two the more comfortable Setra's bound for Bellinzona now depart from a raised platform connected by an escalator at the end of the platforms and one is ready to board in seconds.
