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

Hampshire Coach ELJ 209V at Alton Towers

Coaches come from far and wide to come to Alton Towers and I found the coach park a lot more fun than going on the rides, just a pity it didn't take more than a few minutes. But from the south came a Plaxton bodied Leyland Leopard of Hampshire, former Hants and Dorset, and further afield from just inside Cornwall but something like 300 miles was was this Duple Dominant bodied Volvo B10M of Webber. I don't know about you but seems a long way to come just to feel sick!
