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

Swiss PTT NAW P24437 at Thusis

A favourite amongst Post Bus fans were the NAW BH 4-23 buses first introduced in 1985 and which entered service in small numbers till the early Nineties. These had the right feel and were attractive buses but underneath was a Mercedes powered by an OM 427 h a engine. When the German giant took over FBW and Saurer they retained the latter's factory at Arbon to build specialised add-body buses for the Swiss market like this especially as they wanted to build the bodywork themselves retaining local jobs.
