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

RML 2317: Refurbished Routemaster

For me much of the appeal of the Routemaster lay in the cocktail of lovely sounds it made, so when the RML's were re-engined they lost something. However they certainly looked a lot better refurbished and it gave them more years of service. A very smart RML 2317 was seen passing through Victoria on one of it's most familiar routes the No.11 which crosses the West End.
