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

National UHG 749R at Kidderminster

The way Leyland Nationals were sold to other NBC companies and the next thing others came to replace them seems to me a bit like taking 'coals to Newcastle'. Still there must have been logic to it and it gave th local spotters something to talk about. This one once with Ribble looked quite smart with the luxury of a white band and even Kidderminster perhaps Midland Red most dreary looking garage looked a bit more inviting than usual for some reason perhaps it's the glimpse of a Leopard.
