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

In the NBC era Midland Red had to take new Nationals instead of double-deckers but maybe as compensation it was able to order plenty of  the popular Leyland Leopard which were ideal for it's longer services. The later ones all had coach bodies and 459 still looked smart in later Midland Red West livery as it exited the Bull Ring Bus Station bound for Ludlow on the long X92.
