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

For some work is as lazy as a day at Alton Towers

My last job used to take me to Stoke on Trent where I used to pick up businessmen to take them to a conference centre out in the sticks. The searching debate on board my rusty old Mercedes Minibus parked at the back didn't include what they had come up from the Prosperous South to discuss but only the train times home and how to cut corners to get the early one. So it's hardly surprising that Britain so often fails to deliver. The newest buses in the area were not not run by the major operator First, but as lowly staff buses for Alton Towers.
