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

Blue Bus of Horwich

Like many small Independents set up by former big company manager's Blue Bus of Horwich grew quite big, and was even confident enough to buy new double-deckers and it's vehicles could be seen as far apart as Manchester and Preston where it threatened to take out through crippling competition the wonderful Fishwicks on the Chorley services. Fortunately matters quietened down in the North West when Blue Bus sold out to Arriva. Bolton was one of it's hot-spots and a former West Yorkshire Duple Dominant bodied Tiger was seen in the town during the Nineties.
