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

Two La Poste Volvos: Foul Day in Sion

Doing a check I was surprised there are no photos on here from Sion in Switzerland, a town I visited often and with the exception of Lugano it is the busiest post bus departure point in the country. When I was last there in 1999 or 2000 these Volvos were very much the choice here and two identical buses stand side by side, one can't tell them apart any more but the one with the P-Reg shows it was owned by La Poste as there is a garage here. It was unusual to see a dirty post bus but P25626 had some  uncharacteristic accident damage which probably wasn't that surprising with often difficult conditions  higher up above the snow-line.
