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

Lockey's Atlantean KUS 600E

Although very small in comparison with Trimdon MS, or Venture of Consett, with it's distinctive black and white livery Lockey was also well know amongst enthusiasts. Fortunately they always seemed to keep their buses clean otherwise they would have soon looked scruffy. Not too long after I took this photo of a former Strathclyde Atlantean the firm was taken over by probably the most highly regarded of the many Independents in Durham OK of Bishops Auckland nearby who also had a large fleet.
