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

Western National ANA 92Y

Former National Bus coaches got spread far and wide by their new owners and this former National Travel NW ECW bodied Leyland Leopard found it's way to Tavistock on the edge of Dartmoor and in an area with it's narrow roads, stone walls and sharp bends it was perhaps not the most suitable vehicle for here. However it did look smart enough and the Western National livery of that time was fairly simple with a pleasant blue and white and agreeable to live with without the assistance of Ray Stenning to jazz it up with logos and bold branding.
