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

Bus Rally Blues: Bus & Coach Wales

I find Bus Rallies to be a pleasant day out going somewhere different and being with friends. As for the events they are a bit strange and rather artificial. Bus rides are certainly a plus but can be a bit boring when one has to visit a local brewery on an industrial estate as happened at Merthyr Tydfi last week-end. I could have ridden on the East lLancs bodied Leyland Leopard which once belonged to Rhymney Valley as it's 87, PWO 87Y but opted for a much more traditional half-cab bodied AEC Regent of South Wales Transport instead especially as I had travelled down on another Leopard..
