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

Amongst the most attractive Swiss post buses were some  Hess bodied FBW's delivered in 1977-8. Not only was the large fleet of Saurer RH's that followed based on this styling they were unusual in having Mercedes 0401 engines. Of the twenty-three buses when I was there in Jan 90 Lugano seen here and Meiringen had seven each whilst Thusis had five.
