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

White snow turns to slush

I haven't taken many photos of buses in the recent snows so I took a picture of this one passing rather than catching it and especially as I needed some excercise. The cold weather is certainly a good excuse for warming up on hot curries. This 1993 Plaxton Pointer bodied Dennis Dart started life with Merseybus and is now the oldest Arriva bus at Stafford where it was returning from Uttoxeter on the 842 Service. The use of 8** digit route numbers is about the only reminder of the old Midland Red that once served the town but of course it never worked these services as they were the province of Independents like Wheidon's Green Bus.
