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

Leicester 96 becomes City of Lincoln 96

In the early 80's City of Lincoln had themselves a pretty good buy when they purchased some mid-life ECW bodied Leyland Atlanteans off Leicester City Transport not too far away. Not only were they in excellent condition their new owner didn't even need to do a full repaint retaining the primrose base and only needing to replace Leicester's crimson with naturally a  'Lincoln Green' hue.
