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

The Sign is wrong: No it's not a Coach

It always annoys me when people call a coach a bus, but I have to admit unless it's touts selling tickets to tourists one rarely hear people refer to a bus as a coach. However some buses are quite comfortable today like this upmarket 'Stagecoach Gold' Enviro seen at the Cheshire Oaks on it's way between Chester and Liverpool. At one time bus services would have been pooled to go passed factories and coal pits but today it's shopping centres, so yes times have certainly changed and even gold was a cigarette or brand of coffee. But the gold and blue livery on this bus certainly looks smart as one would expect from Stagecoach, it has certainly moved on since those stripes.
