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

First Potteries YN05 HCO in Newcastle

With their red painted fronts these Potteries branded First buses remind me of similar buses with these Wright bodies in the N.Exp West Midlands fleet. There was a time when I could have told you just from the number whether it was a Volvo or a Scania but these days I'm quite happy just to get decent photos. On this occasion I wanted to keep away from the bus station whilst Victoria got her nails done in Newcastle and this town is quite undulating which makes for interesting views. First doesn't share it's new buses very fairly and just about everything has been cascaded down from 'more important' operations including this ten tear old bus with a Yorkshire marque.
