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

RMC 1485: A Bus For Every Occasion

Towards the end of their long lives London's Routemasters had very mixed fortunes, some looked neglected and scruffy whilst a few chosen buses were semi-preserved looking as good as new.  Stagecoach owned East London and as usual they did it right with a superb looking RMC fit for a VIP wedding. These former Green Line buses like 1962 RMC 1485 485CLT had enjoyed comparatively easy lives as during the NBC era having manual gearboxes they had been used as trainers.
