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

What a bargain, Exeter to London for Twelve-Pounds!

Situated at the gateway to the West Country proper Exeter has always been an important interchange on the express coach network. Today though it is just another National Express stop as nowhere is it as busy or as exciting as it used to be. Not so many years ago the lower area of Paris Street Bus Station was solely for coaches but today they have just a few stands in the main concourse. However at times with the comings and going of the public it can still get quite lively and in 1998 it was hardly surprising when you could go to London for twelve-pounds on Tratherns.
