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

Eastern Scottish Fleetline OSG 75V

The Scottish Bus Group differed from the likes of the BTC and BET Group as they were not only able to buy Leylands, AEC's and as here Fleetlines it was also bought large numbers of Bristol ECW products which not only made for a strange mix the whole lot looked even more remarkable in the rich local liveries. By the time I took this view in Edinburgh in the Eighties like the NBC companies in the England and Wales once great companies were about to be broken up ready for Privatisation and that interesting bus scene might go through a fascinating new chapter but sadly little would remain the same within the former SBG.
