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

Patiently waiting outside Glossop Station

It looks like Stockport based Greater Manchester Northern Counties bodied Atlantean  LJA 640P was here at Glossop with the town brooding like a set from 'The League of Gentlemen' as a backdrop in 1980 on rail replacement duties. Maybe there was more excitement to be found in Stockport but I think it might have been better to stay in with a cup of tea and listen to The Archers or watch the Snooker if it was on.
