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

West Midlands Fleetlines at Miller Street
On West Midlands Fleetlines it was easy to tell a similar early Park Royal body from a MCW body sideways-on by the the more rounded rear dome but it was not quite so easy directly from the front like this. A local MCW product though can be seen behind the former Midland red Alexander bodied bus 6282 of 1971 standing alongside 1965 Park Royal 3511 BON 511C. This final batch of 33 with dual-entrances nearly all paseed to the PTE having been allocated in the area.
