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

Motorway service areas even though they all look the same are still a good place to photograph coaches as they go up and down the country. This Finglands Plaxton Paramount 3500 bodied Leyland Tiger with an impressive and quite valuable registration number 10 RU to hide it's true age was heading south to do a tour of the pretty Cotswolds with it's honey coloured stone villages. Behind it is another Plaxton bodied Coach and this older Panorama bodied AEC Reliance HVU 246N was going a similar way on Route X4 to Bournemouth. We all miss Yelloways but Fingland of Manchester still operate and is owned by another favourite East Yorkshire.
