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

Crusader ex-Trent Leopard

This still attractive former Trent Alexander Y-Type Leopard seen in Derby hadn't travelled far from home. I pruseme it was owned by 'Crusader' from Staunton Harold nine miles away on the Leicestershire boder not far from Ashby de la Zouch. Companies have a lot of meaningless names for many but maybe the connection here is 'The War of the Roses' as many famous battles were fought in the area, but for some they might think a crusader someone who does 'coach cruises'.
