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

Taking it easy in Lausanne

Because of it's rail interest the road transport operators of Switzerland tend to be ignored by transport enthusiasts despite their varied bus, trolleybus and tram systems. On Lake Geneva opposite France Lausanne had quite a laid-back rather romantic feel to it and operated some rather historic trolleybuses and No.684 seen on a dull morning in the early Nineties dated from 1969 was hardly the oldest. I might be wrong but if it is from that series this FBW carried locally built Eggli bodywork

Lucky you, Switzerland there are worse places to grow up, and I went to school in Vaud for two years as well. Having looked at your blog I'm sorry to see Facebook has arrived in the Cantons, whatever next they'll satalite track the whereabouts of your cows up on the hillsides because wearing a cow bell is considered an infringement of Animal Rights.
