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 Post Card from London: Two Routemaster's at Victoria

I'm sure most tourists would prefer to see the famous sights of our Capital but for bus enthusiasts it is far more satisfying to see some nicely turned out buses like these two Routemasters at Victoria which I always regarded as perhaps the London bus and coach mecca. Despite these RM's looking very much the same and their registrations being so close together one thousand more Routemasters were delivered between them and it's quite hard even to imagine such huge bus types going to one operator in the UK today as LT had about 2800 RM's in total if you include the BEA fleet and it would seem at times most of them have been preserved as one will keep popping up in my travels!
