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

154 Neuchatel FBW

In the late Seventies the planners in Switzerland as elsewhere wanted to put everything in tidy little boxes and decreed that all the town buses should have their individual liveries replaced by this orange and white. Some dragged their feet so that by the time it was abandoned few buses had suffered this curse. Others on the other hand like Lausanne adopted this livery as standard. I don't care for it much and thankfully attractive towns like Neuchatel went back to it's cream livery.
