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

In Zurich every day is a new day
By the early Nineties bus-wise at least the remaining FBW and Saurer buses in Switzerland were being pushed out as the German Invasion continued and not surprisingly the Mercedes-Benz 0405 played an important part. There is no point saying that No.581 looked new as like the Post Buses, Zurich's fleet spent their whole lives looking new. How us humans would like to learn from them.
