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

Former No.69: By then a trainer for CJB

During my busy day driving  I regularly used to see this former Lytham St Annes  Massey bodied Leyland PD2A/30 trainer trundling along coming the other way on the other carriageway of the main A34 between Stoke and Stafford and luckily just once I caught it at rest near Trentham and grabbed a quick photo. Pity my spotting days were long gone as this was the only one of the trio I didn't see 68-70. I think I only visited the Lytham Corporation Garage once spotting but as was often the case failed to realise there was also a large yard behind the garage where this bus might have been waiting for me to put pen to paper.
