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

The Wait is Over but the 828 was on time

There is something about going for a walk and taking a camera with you. The sun came out and the lady wearing a bright red coat made it a good potential picture. Arriva wants to cut the recently introduced 828 Stafford to Brereton service but the contract is meant to run till Spring. Normally it is 55-Plate Plaxton Darts but newer spare VDL's feature as well like 3757. Note the concrete bus stop post a reminder of the old pre-NBC Midland Red as is the 800 series route numbers they used for out of town services in the Stafford area.
