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

D913 URG; Low Fell Coaches

By the mid-Eighties Bedford and Ford coaches had gone out of favour not being quite rugged or fast enough for the motorway age when compared to a more beefy Leyland Leopard or Volvo B10M. But with the need for simpler more cost effective single-deckers Bedfords seemed to find a nitch with certain independents for bus work but sadly it was not to last. Here in Newcastle on Tyne is a Plaxton Bustler bodied Bedford YMT.
