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

On Deregulation the former West Yorkshire PTE expanded slightly when it acquired the York based services of the former NBC West Yorkshire. Call it standardisation but often it's a way of getting rid of unpopular types and a number of the PTE's Leyland National2 buses found their way here. I don't know the story but no less than three can be seen in this view with York Minster in the background.
