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

A Leyland for Leyland Paints

This former Fishwick's Leyland Leopard XTB188D didn't travel very far to find a new owner as it remained in it's home town of Leyland where it became a staff bus for Leyland Paints. Unlike most demoted PSV's this Plaxton bodied coach still looked very appealing and smart. This was not the first former Fishwick Leyland to be used by this paint manufacturer so I expect much of it's excellent condition might be to do with a service contract with the coaches former owner whose coach garage was just to the side of this view.
