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

Warstine Bedford OB Duple Vista GCA 747

Some might disapprove of my attempt to photograph Warstone's well known Duple Vista bodied Bedford OB through the fence. Originally bought for spares for lorries the need to find work for this still roadworthy machine started it all off with bus work and I like the idea of one being enticed through the gates to view what in the middle of the Leyland National era can only be called pure gems all turned out in that lovingly applied dark green and cream livery.

Surely Warstone? In the 1990's this bus was used, in August, on the Friday only Cannock - Lichfield via Chorley route. Often with Graham Martin himself selling Bell Punch tickets and with a fag in his mouth. Now all gone....

Tony Martin, no relation!
