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

Looking for Red in Bridgnoth

In Midland Red days Bridgnorth was a bit special for even though it was not particularly busy with departures it was served by no less than five of the companies bus garages and even had two town services. Buses moved between garages quite frequently but it would not be the place to try to see everything as a spotter for they were only single-deckers. A more important place on the system that had no garage for most of it's history was Coventry and I counted at least eleven garages that served the city on bus routes some of which were quite long and of course it included double-deckers. Back in Bridgnorth the  local undertaker peers out as an ugly Plaxton Centro bodied Volvo B7RLE of Bryn Melyn passes through Low Town on what would have been local Midland Red workings years ago.
