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

BNH246C: Northampton's Finest

In the early Eighties the fast dying breed of half-cabs like the Northampton Roe bodied Daimler CVG6 buses already looked something of an anachronism. But these were so solid elegant and reliable one almost couldn't understand why an operator should need to get rid of them as unlike the newer types they didn't seem to age looking very much as if they would happily go forever. Four years their senior 1965 BNH246G lasted till the end running alongside the final G-Reg buses and cornering briskly it was obviously still a good lively performer.
