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

Does this go via Orwell: Route 101?

A PMT Plaxton Paramount bodied Leyland Tiger ERF24Y STL 24 coach demoted to bus work was giving people a comfortable journey on the 101 which at that time went all the way from Stafford to Leek right across the operating area. Great for passengers if many actually went all the way but no doubt at times a nightmare for time-keeping. One wonders today how the old cross London Green Line services would fare with so much congestion. I think someone out to de-invent the car or as it might be somewhere on this route put them in Room 101.
