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

Colchester Leylan Atlantean MVK 546R

As well as building up a fleet of it's ordered new Leyland Atlanteans, Colchester Corporation purchased used examples as well a practice common in the uncertain and financially stretched Eighties. This one which came down the east side from Tyne and Wear with it's Alexander curved glass front and big windows looked very different to the rather more restrained Massey and ECW bodies favoured here in the Essex County Town.
