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

Odense: I'm always Sucker for a brand new bus

Some brand new buses stand out more than others and maybe it's because I'm getting older that I don't seem to notice them so much. On the other hand when they were all painted in strong primary colours they really gleamed like this recently entered in service dark red Volvo belonging to DSB, the Danish State Railways in 1982 which bore a nice fleetnumber too 666. Previously most of the fleet had been bodied by Aabenraa but as well as a few on Leyland DAB's the fleet also started to feature DAB bodies on it's customary Volvo's.
