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

KRE283P Used Nationals in Reading

I suppose one of the interesting aspects of Deregulation was the way bus got scattered far and wide turning up in what had previously seemed the most unlikely places. Reading did not have anything to do with the Leyland National but they became a feature of the fleet when it snapped up the Alder Valley operations in Newbury. Some also ran from Reading like this former Potteries example KRE283P.
