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 Saurer RH 24360 heading off to Tschiertien

By the time this photo was taken at the Swiss PTT garage at Chur at the end of the Nineties the faithful Saurer RH population was getting thin on the ground, but this 1983 example with Ramseier and Jenzer bodywork from Biel was still the best bus to head up the traditional Post Bus mountain road journey to the village of Tschiertien. Despite being about fifteen years old with not too long to go it still looked as good as new.
