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

First 37297: Hard to bury the past

Before the PTE's came along the joint Manchester route to Bury was No.35,  and today now numbered 135 it's an important busy service even on Sunday. Two smart First 'Flagship'  Wright bodied Volvos pick their way through Cheetham Hill with one MX07 BUE No. 37297 wearing attractive heritage Bury green and cream whilst MX57 HEJ No.37302 carries the current livery which includes local branding for Manchester.
