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

32 YKK has an uncertain future at Garston in 1982.

This style of bodywork was to be found on the early thirty-six-foot buses built to BET specification in 1962-63. Most were built by Willowbrook like former Maidstone and District 32 YKK who took two dual-purpose examples SC31-32, plus five as buses S1-5. Sadly only one of these long looking elegant beasts has survived into preservation, one of the similar 100 examples delivered to Midland Red No.5212 Reg. 5212 HA.
