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

Mid 90's: Arriva buses in the snow

It doesn't seem that many years ago since Arriva Stafford operated a large number of Tigers it inherited from Midland Red North in the town plus mainly former Stevenson's Lynx's. Sadly Leylands have been gone some time now and no doubt the jerky automatic transmission and sprightly performance of buses like H408 YMA would not have been appreciated in the slippery conditions of snow where the more solid ride of the conventional mid-engined Tiger was better.
