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

Cheltenham & District Reborn: Leyland National PHW 985S

Even I am starting to feel a bit of nostalgia for things like the Leyland National, and especially going to Cheltenham and all owned by the same firm being able to see Gloucester's pained blue and those from Stroud in green. Swindon's were a bit more jazzy but like Cheltenham & Disrict PHW 985S employed a red and cream livery. Yes the few years between the demise of the old boring NBC hues till the seemingly all encompassing marques of empire with the big groups were a bit like an Indian Summer for enthusiasts.
