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

Stagecoach at Cheshire Oaks: Golden but hardly a golden oldie

The current registration system is easy to understand but a bit dull and not exactly useful for tying together fleet numbers. Oh well it's not too far away and the Stagecoach 'Gold' liveried Enviro might be registered in Scotland but the last bit ODJ is a bit of the old St. Helens with it's proper buses. But more and more bus services are routed to serve places like upmarket shopping village Cheshire Oaks like 27269 on a journey between Chester and Liverpool. Oh yes and it really used to annoy me when people called buses coaches and coaches buses, and I suppose dual-purpose are still buses rather than a coach. Still one cannot argue that this is not a d/p spec either but it only does bus work so it must be a bus.
