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

SCK 696P: Three Leyland Types in Wigan

Like Stockport the town of Wigan was a late retuge for theGreater Manchester half-cab Titan and I made a point of calling. But now  over thirty years later even the humdrum National Mk1's have their notch on the measure of transport nostalgia and especially with a proper name like Ribble. Wigan usually ordered Leylands but the body orders were split fairly between the two local bodybuilders with a PD2 of Massey and an Atlantean of Northern Counties showing it's rear bustle.
