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

Thamesdown: What's in a name?

Even though the title has been around some years now few outside Swindon would know or care where Thamesdown is. Perhaps it portrays a new clean go-ahead high-tech image but I would rather remember it's railway heritage instead of today's acres of tinted plate glass.  I'm so glad they never did it to Crewe. Swindon Corporation buses never ventured far beyond the Borough whereas Deregulated Thamesdown  coaches were free to go all the way to Bristol like this former Green Line Leyland Tiger looking rather smart.
