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

825 A Midland Red Survivor

In Midland Red North days the 825 from Stafford was extended to Tamworth where 1709 was based. Today it has reverted back to the traditional Lichfield terminus. However the once direct service is much slower than it was in BMMO days as the 62 minute journey now makes various diversions and takes a more tedious 80 minutes, one can't enjoy doing it upstairs on a D9 or the regular D10 either, more's the pity.
