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

Ribble Atlantean now called North Western RTF 635M

There were still plenty of double-deckers rushing about in Liverpool during the Nineties including many Atlanteans like this former Ribble Park Royal bodied AN68 which had been transferred to a locally devolved entity for services around Merseyside and SW.Lancashire and even though the name was apt it  had nothing to do with the old North Western Road Car of Stockport.

Liveries like that of the new North Western looked fresh and, dare I say it, exciting back in the day. Now they just look very 1980s - they haven't aged well at all.

But at least they're not as boring as those of the Big Three today...

I agree with you Ross at least there was something to cater for every taste and at least in this instance they tried to keep them looking smart.
