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

A Western National Bristol LH Plaxton at Tavistock

The bus station in the small town of Tavistock occupies the site of the old Western National bus garage. It used to be quite a modest affair as can be seen here but has since been rebuilt since this photo was taken of a small Plaxton bodied Bristol LH with grant doors. A decent amount of comfort and an ideal tool for the narrow roads around Dartmoor, but this former National Travel South West coach No.318 in 1981 was now Western National 1333 and had just returned from busy Plymouth on the 83.
