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

Winterthur Articulated Vovo Bus 305

As well as narrow-gauge mountain railways and trams Switzerland still has a good number of trolleybus systems including Winterthur best known for it's 'Assurance' insurance advertisements. Here in 1989 was a Volvo articulated bus and a Saurer trolleybus in the background. It's easy to tell them apart as in the cantons trolleybuses don't have to carry registration numbers.
