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

Edinburgh: First-SMT Atlantean ORS 204R

First Group was formed from a merger of the Privitised Groups Badgerline and Grampian. Grampian of course was formerly Aberdeen Corporation which in later years built up a large fleet of Alexander bodied Atlanteans. ORS 204R was still in Scotland when I caught it hard at work in Edinburgh with First-SMT and looking rather scruffy compared to the similar but always  immaculate Lothian examples
