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

Clydeside Leyland Leopard BSJ 916T

I suppose it was my initial interest in the vast Midland Red empire that has given me a fascination for big sprawling bus companies which usually had a mixture of high density urban operations and branches going out into the middle of nowhere. A good example was Western Scottish but sadly like it's similar NBC cousins by the Nineties it was chopped up as can be seen from this Leopard pictured in a sunny Glasgow now with Clydeside which at least gave it a reasonably attractive livery.
