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

BVG Berlin 1182 on the 211 to Wannsee

As elsewhere as subsidies are cut and costs increase bus manufacturers realised there was no such thing as a 'free lunch' as traditional markets gave up local loyalties as they now strived to costs costs first. BVG of West Berlin had been reliant on mainly MAN and Mercedes buses since the war but that was all to change and the advent of a batch of Volvo buses started to add a bit of variety.
