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

Greater Manchester North-Liverpool

At one time everything had it's place and would not have dreamt of seeing Manchester buses working in Liverpool and visa-verse. But such was the spirit of competition brought on by Deregulation operators were more or less forced to to branch out or fight back. Naturally usually it cost everyone concerned far more money than it made but it certainly gave us enthusiasts something to talk about. Greater Manchester buses in Liverpool originally ran from Wigan about half way between the two cities but as you can see they got their own small fleet with a local LL garage code. As you can see by the buses in the background as Northern Counties bodied Atlantean RJA 706R No.7706 heads out of the city competition in the Beatles city was rife in the Nineties.
