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

Go-Ahead a NBC self-off survivor

Of course it's still here but of the privatised NBC companies who could have predicted which ones might survive. I'm sure Go-Ahead Northern wasn't a front runner so it's nice to see a well turned out Atlantean which was going somewhere in time. YNL208V was new to Tyne and Wear PTE and carried one of the last bodies built by MCW before it decided to body only it's own products especially the rather promising new Metrobus!
