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

SP58 DPE: Well it does say Cameras

As you can see there's a huge sign there that says 'Cameras' so no excuses lol. Looking in smart in a plummy crimson red wtih gold was an Optare Versa of Tanat Valley whose attractive livery will make the many similar buses with Arriva in Shrewsbury look rather pedestrian. Once Mid Wales ran a wealth of interesting elderly buses to places like Welshpool and like this one to Montgomery but the times have changed and these rural operators sometimes run buses that are even more up to date than the big groups with all that buying power, Stagecoach of course being the exception.
