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

Nottingham City Transport Leyland Lion 384

Leyland Bus wanted to extend it's model range with sophisticated imports from it's Danish subsidiary DAB but no doubt these were deemed too expensive. These included the underfloor Lion but apart from Nottingham City and Eastern Scottish there was little interest. Coach seated F384 GVO adds to the cloud of dust and exhaust smoke as it tries to make a quick getaway setting out from Doncaster Races back to Nottingham.
