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

5161 First Calderdale at Burnley Bus Station

Once Todmondon's rather elegant bottle-green lowbridge all-Leyland PD2's used to be a familiar sight at Burnley. Firstly they were merged with Halifax before becoming part of the West Yorkshire PTE. Passing on to the First Group I suppose not all was totally lost as in their early years Calderdale had the most attractive of the local First's liveries as witnessed by 5161 F161 FYG a Northern Counties bodied Leyland Olympian on the 592.
