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

Hills of Tredegar

Perhaps the best known coach operator in wales was Hills of Tredegar with between fifty and sixty vehicles. As well as mostly Leyland coaches it also had a few service buses too and this early Leopard L1 dating from 1960 has been preserved. XWO 911 seen at the bus rally in Merthyr Tydfil it shows off the features that were so characteristic of these Burlingham underfloor bus and coach bodywork.
