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

NMY635E. Not just any old Routemaster

One thing I like about Stagecoach is the way they usually do things properly. For instance other operators would think an old Routemaster can just sell itself but as you can see this East London example had been turned out in a very traditional based Sixties London livery and few would realise that for most of it's early years it was on contract to BEA as RMA 35 where it towed a trailer before redundancy led to years as a scruffy driver instruction bus before RM's in local politicians eyes became sexy again.
