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

H809 GRE: Optare Delta carries the Staffordshire Knot.

PMT had a batch of rather superior Optare Deltas to try alongside the Leyland Lynx. In the end nothing came of it as big buses went out of favour for a while as smaller Plaxton Pointer Dennis Darts were bought instead. SAD 809 was lettered up for the quicker X60 but was working the slower 260 as it passed some rather battered Transits belonging to a contractor digging up Tipping Street.
