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

Former Highland Olympian with Ribble B896UAS

Strangely even though they now all carried those Stagecoach Stripes I still liked the former buses of it's Ribble area far more to say that of United Counties and other former BTC fleets. I'm sure some of it is because at my favourite places I try to savour the past, and besides there were still plenty of echoes of earlier times even though most of that was from the NBC years. Leylands were still about in abundance when I took this view in the mid-Nineties, but Alexander RL bodied Olympian B896 UAS at Preston was a long way south from it's former haunts as I have a 1986 allocation for it at  the Highland Omnibus depot at Nairn.
