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

OHK 432: Lincoln Bus Running DAy

Those who go regularly will I agree that the end of season 1st November Lincoln running event is always enjoyable whatever the weather for it is well organised with friendly helpers and a mouth-watering selection of old buses of all vintages. A popular visitor this year was this fine 1949 Daimler CVD6 with rare Roberts bodywork Colchester No.4 in it's original colours OHK 432.

Thanks for the positive comments, especially about the volunteers. :)

I'm glad you had a good day - it's fun for us too (although my feet have only just stopped aching after being on them for a solid 12 hours yesterday!)

I think it might have been a record attendance yesterday; it certainly felt busy all day.

Hi Ross, I'm glad you enjoyed it too and even though the weather is starting to turn now this year we were especially lucky. Which bus were you on I rode on about seven?

Hi Christopher,

I wasn't on the buses themselves as I was being "Blakey" at the Pyke Road terminus, trying to make sure everything ran smoothly, letting people know what was happening, answering questions and probably getting in the way of thousands of photos in the process!

It looked a bit dodgy first thing with the fog but once it burned off we were blessed with a real Indian summer of a day. We really couldn't have asked for better!

Ross the Bearded Blakey ;)
