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

Brig: Back to the Postauto Garage
Not surprisingly in mucky weather it was possible to see dirty post buses arriving back at the garage but with legendary Swiss efficiency they usually went out the next day again spotless. Here is a more uncommon type of view as Brig's Tusher bodied Saurer RH P24400 was being filled up with diesel after a long day trudging through the wet snow and slush. Being from the final batch of these buses of 1984-5 I photographed this one in 1998 when they were starting to get quite rare on the system. Most of the P24400-P24415 batch were further up the Rhone Valley in Sion but if I remember rightly P24400/1/5 were operated here.
