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

The Drawline Livery chosen for Midland Red North

The Drawline bus livery chosen by Ray Stenning for Midland Red North looked rather attractive on the recently rebodied Tigers. The yellow and red dual-purpose version was perhaps better but I felt it fell down as the buses looked a bit too much like some of Midland Red West and even PMT. Stafford ran many of these new creations of both lenths including B103KPF which still looked new when it arrived from Crewe complete with front wheel trims, a real rarity by then but made it look much more tidy.
