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

Western National 86 Plymouth to Barnstable

This Dennis Dart was photographed in the days when Western National still ran from Plymouth to Okehampton and the N.Devon coast. But life must be more dull today for the Tavistock drivers who rarely stray beyond the various less pretty runs in to Plymouth. As elsewhere the often quite pleasing individual First company liveries have been replaced by a corporate greyness. Also gone is the traditional looking garage over the road here in Tavistock.
