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

Trent's first Volvo's were a spot-on

For the newly Privatised Trent the first big gamble was making a major investment in new buses. Their choice of Alexander R bodied Volvo B10D buses must have been a good one for it is one of the few former NBC companies that have managed to stay Independent. Go-Ahead like Trent a former BET company has off-shoots beyond it's roots on Tyneside but apart from buying out Barton who shared much of it's territory this operator hasn't really changed too dramatically.
