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

HT: More Volvos in the centre of Copenhagen

Rather like the old London Transport that had a separate green painted country fleet, HT the controlling operator for the greater Copenhahen area was almost like two fleets as in the centre it operated numerous  DAB's but in the suburbs and slightly beyond pretty well all you saw were Aabenraa bodied Volvos. By the Nineties not only were Scania buses making a impact in the city centre those Volvo's were becoming more numerous as well. Actually the HT garages were split into four districts and although the outside buses were different it was probably due to the Volvos being more suited to the lighter faster work. At the end of the Eighties No.1619 was in Copenhagen on Route 9 to Kastrup Airport.
