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

New and old at Gelterkinden

For a long time the PTT Area garages of Gelterkinden and Aarau were bastians for the rapidly dimminishing Saurer RH as the 'Garage Bosses' there had no time for the new fangled imports from Germany. Of course it had to end and at first Setra's like P25852 arrived but later the ubiquitous Mercedes Citaro became standard. Sadly even Switzerland has to catch up with the modern world and it's seems it's wonderful transport system like everywhere else seems to be a target for the mindless graffiti taggers and vandals. Still I'm sure you can still get your head around wonderful Germanic place names like Wegenstetten.
