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

A bit far too north even for Eastern Counties in Lincoln: Bristol FLF JAH 553E.

Outside Lincoln Railway Station picking up enthusiasts on a museum running day last November. At least they will get quite a few on this seventy seater Bristol ECW bodied FLF. I always had a soft spot for Eastern Counties perhaps it was a combination of things including the way they managed to make some attempt to match the registrations to the fleet number like many muncipals and the BET Group. I also favour the more cheerful 'Tilling Red' as apposed to often drab green and of course the operator's huge and fascinating and often very rural operating area covering Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and  Norfolk where one could find small bus garages and even dormy sheds was quite enticing.
