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

Lincoln City Relince in Blackpool

In it's later years especially as the NBC favored the Leopard over the Reliance in the UK it was perhaps only because London Country still wanted this AEC for it's Green Line duties which kept it on the order books. These coaches were leased  through Arlington the dealer but the good thing about that was when the contract expired smaller AEC fans had an easily affordable source of mid-life coaches. One of the less obvious purchasers was Lincoln who bought this Plaxton example for a National Express contract.
