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

A New Derby Fleetline GTO 306V on delivery at Knutsford Services

In the past there always seemed to be a certain allure about a brand new bus something that seems lacking today. Perhaps I'm too old and jaded to notice them but I don't think it's that,  I guess not only do they have less brightwork to glitter today and of course wheels that start to look grubby the modern liveries are much more neutral never showing any obvious newness. When photographed at Knutsford Services on the M6 this Daimler Fleetline had travelled less than thirty miles from where it's body was built by Northern Counties at Wigan.
