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

BF52 OAE Arriva: Sorry Not in Service

When a bus has a major breakdown in the centre of town and takes ages to be recovered it does not do the image of a company like Arriva any good. A Wright bodied VDL and the usual type of Wednesfield garage bus to be found on the 76 from Wolverhampton, I think think I actually went on it this morning and it sounded okay but 3718 obviously failed big time in Stafford. Worse still it was next to a tight mini-roundabout and other buses had trouble turning out of Greengate Street on to South Wales here in Stafford adding to the entertainment..
