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

I can't remember if the local transport operator BVB were still running a tram between Chesieres and Villars when I arrived there for schooling there in 1963. However even though the operator made the former Post Garage it's main operating and maintenance depot the old BVB tram yard was still there and being used as a storage area in 1989. By this time the Swiss underfloor engined Saurer DUK introduced in the early Sixties was getting a lot more more scarce but it looked as though at least VD 608 still had a bit more useful work left in it yet.
