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

City Line Bristol VR PHY 699S

One of the nice things about going down to the West Country by coach was there was usually a decent enough break at Bristol and Marlborough Street Bus Station was situated in such a way that there were a number of good spots to take photographs nearby. Red yellow and blue together were popular colours employed on a number of former NBC fleet including the Bristol City Line fleet where it's brightening effect was almost 'springlike' compared to that drab old leaf-green and white. A Muller Road VR pick up a good load on it's way to Henbury.
