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

Wet Wet Wet at Bretonside

What a wet shocker in Plymouth, but as this Plaxton Paramount 3500 on Rapide 531 prepares to leave for distant Newcastle on Tyne I don't think the weather would be any better up there either just colder. I think it was  Christmas 1987 and I was down there for my mothers funeral so pretty miserable all round ready. As for the coach it was a lot more interesting than it looked for despite Northern on the side it was only on loan being part of the Yorkshire Traction fleet and an uncommon Leyland Royal Tiger delivered new as A72 YDT.
