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

It's Yorkshire Traction No. 1

When there's a rail strike an already busy Victoria Coach Station bursts at the seams and a whole load of Policemen, Officials and Inspectors are required to make sure everything grinds to a halt smoothly. I'm not sure what Yorkshire Traction No. 1 6078HE was a they resused the numbers and by then in the early Nineties Leyland Tigers might have given way to the likes of newer Volvo B10M's with similar Plaxton 3500 bodywork.
