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

B900 WRN Stagecoach Lancaster

Perhaps it was because buses were becoming more mundane certain vehicles stood out as being different. Now belonging to Stagecoach this Duple Dominant Leyland Tiger had been unique in the Ribble fleet having originally been destined to be the tenth bus in a Midland Red North order. Apparently it was retained by Leyland to try out various modifications. With Ribble I remember it spent a lot of time around Blackpool but by now had to moved to Lancaster when it was heading for the wilds of Ingleton.

Good to see that this vehicle has been preserved and is in Ribble NBC colours. Cracking picture.

Yes I agree Alan, but of course you mean in NBC Ribble colours. I have another photo of it in that NBC guise in Liverpool where it was often to be seen.
