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

Midland Red Willowbrook Leyland YHA408J

Even though examples of the more numerous Marshall DP bodied Midland Red Leopards have been preserved it's a shame none of the Willowbrook buses that preceeded them have been saved too least of all because they might wear the earlier all-red livery in which they arrived. By the time Cannock based 6408 YHA408Y was photographed in Stafford it was in NBC bus livery but still looking quite smart.
