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

Something Missing From The Lynx! WMT C66HOM

One of many West Midlands 1066 was one of the trial batch of Leyland Lynx buses tested alongside some Volvo Alexander P-Series B10M's. And yes had they chosen the Optare Delta like Claribel that would have been the better choice too. Once Leyland was a great British brand name famed arond the world for ruggedness and reliability but under government ownership as part of BL along with other setbacks little was spent on development and research on the bus side. I was against it as I'm afraid Brexit won't bring any of these once great names back or help to keep what's left we're stuffed I'm afraid because it won't work!
