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

First Huddersfield Scania in Halifax

The First Group was rather more interesting when it retained the local liveries on it's older vehicles before the introduction of that unpleasant Barbi2 with the 'dribbled' paint look to give than the corporate feel.. Some of the earlier colour schemes were better than others and of the former WYPTE fleets the Halifax blue white and yellow seen in the background was by far the best whilst Bradford's light blue and tomato-red was horrid. This middle-aged 1989 Huddersfield Plaxton bodied Scania No.1460 G460JYG leaving Halifax was quite acceptable too and even more so for being a less common type.
