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

Die Post Volvo in Chur

Unlike the old PTT the Deregulated Die Post was able to pursue a much less standardised vehicle policy based more on cost as not only did it now have to stand on it's own two feet it had to compete for much of the business. Fortunately it was able to start competing on other operators much more profitable urban routes too like this bus in 2000 P25683, one of a new breed of Hess bodied Volvos to arrive in the PTT Regie fleet and seen in Chur.
