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

More Schooldays

After Switzerland I spent two terms in Cheshire at Great Budworth where I was close to the Warrington-Northwich 135-6 Service. This regularly employed the ten fine AEC Renowns to be found  at Northwich. No. 127 plus 115-117 were from the second 1964 batch of fifteen Park Royal bodied buses of which not all four examples arrived here when new. Probably some were displaced in the Stockport area by Fleetlines when still quite new. However secondhand Daimlers were to arrive here too in 1966 plus a few months later some new examples.
