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

Bee-Line: Former Crosville PFM 128Y

Some of the pre-Barbi First Group liveries were rather attractive and the cheerful nicely proportioned red blue and yellow of North Western Bee-Line was certainly a lot more colourful than the rather uninspiring 'tomato soup' and purple scheme used on the First-GM bus going the other way. Time is kind to many body designs and the ECW body on this former Crosville Olympian seems to look nicer with age as we start to miss them no doubt helped by memories of the sounds too.
