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

Sheffield JOC ECW Leopard 1881 WA

I told them but a trick EFE missed for a nice model was the Sheffield JOC Leopard with ECW MW style body. The only combination of the two it was these quirks that made being a bus enthusiast interesting in the Sixties. Coach seated the three buses did the longer services as seen here in Manchester. It was because the JOC was partly owned by British Rail that the Corporation had access to the nationalised sector products.
