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

Trial Buses in Liverpool Including Olympian 0064 A316 GLV

Merseyside PTE like it's forerunner Liverpool Corporation was a keen user of the Leyland Atlantean but of course eventually it had to go out of production. The PTA was obviously undecided what to buy next so simultaneously  they bought a whole variety of trial  double-decker buses in small batches from Leyland, Dennis, MCW and Volvo. It was a bit of a waste of time as the days of the PTE's were already numbered with Deregulation in the offing. I always liked the Alexander R-Type body  as seen on Leyland Olympian 0064 but  as well as these five they had  another ten X-Reg buses with ECW bodies.
