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

Wolfgang: What's in a name?

One of the things I most enjoy when abroad is savouring all the strange words and I must admit the men's name of Wolfgang always makes me smile. I think this Nineties Hess bodied NAW trolleybus in St Gallen is bound for the long departed Wolfgang's Hut or cabin perhaps? Surprisingly for a country that seems to have a complexity of laws and regulations somehow trolleybuses like trams don't need to carry registration numbers, and I suppose if someone jumped in the driver's seat and stole one they wouldn't get very far so there would be no need to scribble down the number.
