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

South Lancs in Leigh G61 GND

The Lancashire town of Leigh might not have been as interesting as in the days when it was served by Lancashire United and of course it's own buses, but even in the Nineties it was worth a visit and one of the interesting current visitors was South Lancs who ran this former Timeline Alexander bodied Leyland Tiger G61 GND. Originally a Shearings bus these rather basic looking buses were bought for their cheapness but they turned out to be exceptional value as not only were they nicknamed by my local company 'Bosnian Tanks' they stood the teat of time too being very solid. Actually I quite liked them when turned out in an attractive livery which broke up the lines a bit.
