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

Plymouth Park-Royal bodied Leyland Atlantean MCO 254H

For many years Plymouth ran a 100% Leyland fleet and it was highly standardised for Early-Fifties Leyland bodied PD2's were followed by MCW bodies which continued well into the Atlantean era. However in later years there was a bit more variety in the bodywork and this 1970 example of what some might term the Sheffield 'Park Royal Roe' body was rather attractive compared to the earlier MCW boxes.
