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

F986 TTF: Chiltern Queens

Had the demise of so many much loved bus operators not been so gradual most of of us would have just despaired long ago. But at least we get a little comfort when we were at the right place to photograph them, and at Reading this applies to a Chilton Queens Optare bodied Mercedes in their then coach livery even if it isn't exactly what make the company famous.
