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

Happy Days of Woodseaves

With Deregulation Happy Days Coaches of Woodseaves near Stafford reminded us of it's former days as G.H Austin when it started buying second-hand buses again. As before most were Leylands but a couple of rare sixty-one seat high-capacity  Wadham Stringer bodied Bedford YMT's appeared from Maidstone Borough Council including TKM 111X. To be truthful thses buses and usually shorther were not exactly rare as the British Forces and other none PSV users had them but they were ceratinly not common as a service bus.
