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

Red & Cream for F278 HOD

By the time this view was taken towards the end of the Nineties much travelled Midland Red 1778 F278 HOD was part of Arriva as was the 404 to Stafford from Uttoxeter which was once a Whieldon's Green Bus service before being taken over by Stevenson's. For a time allocated to Cannock this bus had been painted in BMMO revived all-red livery but like the others looked much nicer a more cheerful red and cream.
