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

Hutchinson's Scottish Pullman

Growing up reading the fleet news in Buses Illustrated as well as our school tables we learnt our operator listing rhymes such as for this coach firm 'Hutchinson of Overtown' seen working a Deregulated 'Scottish Pullman'service out of Glasgow Buchanan Street large busy Bus Station in the mid-Nineties. A number of firms had a go but most ended up handing their services to the all powerful Scottish Citylink formed from the intensive operations of the mighty state owned Scottish Bus Group which judging from what happened elsewhere in the Uk was pretty inevitable.  Duple's final offering the 320 and as here higher 340 was one of it nicest designs and looked fine on Hutchinson's Volvo F775 FYS.
