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

Routes to Willenhall: A brand new Metrobus

It must have been fairly new as it seemed many West Midlands Travel buses at that time were falling prey to graffiti vandals adding their yobbish tags to buses. This view of MCW Metrobus No.2887 on a round-about route to Willenhall via New Invention includes other older regulars to be found at Walsall at this time with a Bristol VR in the background, a type which was being replaced by even less standard Volvo Alisa buses transfered in from other garages like 4743 bound for Wolverhampton on the former joint trolleybus route that goes directly to Willenhall.
