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

TPJ501Y: Bee Line to the Capital

This Leyland Olympian coach was operated by Alder Valley one of a number of NBC companies in the Home Counties that had them for commuter express services into London and 801 TPJ501Y dating from about 1981 is seen here negotiating the West End traffic in later years after the operations passed to Bee Line. I'm not sure if I was so keen on the Dutch inspired livery which seemed much more at home in Holland.
