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

Oranienburg OVG: I should have asked hich was best bus

When the Berlin Wall came down everything had to be modernised to bring it up to modern standards including public transport. Out went the legions of in truth quite reliable Ikarus buses to be replaced by more recent types from The West or as seen here at Oranienburg where OVG new modern stock like these MAN and Mercedes buses complete with an old Ikarus in the background. My only regret is I didn't ask that driver which was the best!
