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

From Yelloway Yellow and orange to Red Bus red and grey

When SUT bought out Yelloways they quickly sold off much of the stock including newer vehicles like this Plaxton Paramount 3500 bodied Leyland Tiger which had been the Rochdale operators current choice, replacing these tidy motors with high mileage dealer stock.  But they were a good buy for some like this example with a split off area from Western National now called North Devon and trading as Red Bus. it was pictured at Barnstable in the sunshine of June 92.
