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

Duple Vega Bedford

Although Burlingham with it's Seagull and Harrington were the top heavyweight coach builders of the Fifties, when it came to the lightweight market where Bedford also led the way Duple was way ahead of the others with it's eye catching Vega range. WPT 738 was seen in the line-up between the showers at Bus and Coach Wales at Merthyr Tydfil last Sunday.
