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

The at Lichfield825: Now that was a Midland Red Route.

Sadly not much is left of the old Midland Red, most of the garages have gone as have the bus stations, anyway at least the way they used to be. Of course there are still a few reinforced concrete bus stop poles around. But a decent reminder is those few bus routes which have not changed. The 825 going between Stafford and Lichfield is a good example but the actual route has been altered and it's fortunate that D7,D9 and the D10's double-deckers no longer work it as they would not get much further than Great Haywood from Stafford. The Sixties built bus station in Lichfield is still very much the same though where an Arriva Wright bodied VDL was seen although Volvo's are more common on this route.
