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

485CLT: Wedding Belles & RM Decibells

You don't have to be a bus fanatic it would seem to hire an old bus for your wedding especially a Routemaster. Still they could have done much worse than choose smart Stagecoach East London RMC 1485 485CLT which was usually still in service in the Nineties running passed here regularly on the 15. These buses were delivered as Green Line coaches but spent much of their lives as trainers due to their having semi-automatic gearboxes. Many looked very scruffy towards the end but thankfully Deregulation made the friendly and reliable Routemaster a useful tool once more.
