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

Under positive guidance from the local Labour Council South Yorkshire PTE set out to be a good example of how bus services could charge low fares and run modern passenger friendly buses. But with Deregulation it had to be sold off and ended up with an operator with a poor reputation First Bus. Yet to be repainted and still looking smart was this Wright bodied Volvo one of a fleet of low-floor buses the PTE had bought.
