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

Williamson's on the X96

Once the long distance services like the X96 which crossed much of the BMMO empire were a source of pride for Midland Red. But during the NBC era they were cut back and by the time Williamson's were operating it, it only ran from Birmingham to Shrewsbury.  Nevertheless this former Colchester Leopard looked rather good as it headed out into the sunshine leaving the gloomy depths of the Bull Ring Bus Station behind.
