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

These Tigers Nicknamed Bosnian Tanks

These functional looking former shearings and Timeline Tigers were nicknamed Bosnian Tanks and whilst they were at Stafford in the mid-Nineties I captured three together including at least two on ex-Happy Days routes. One old chap told me after the war before the main A449 was made dual-carriageway he remembers seeing long lines of redundant tanks on the side of the road near Four Ashes and Gailey. I don't think it was these though as their Belfast built bodies weren't constructed till 1986.
