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

Clydeside Leopard TSJ 39S in Glasgow

I think most of the other Scottish Bus Group fleets were more interesting quirky and probably more attractive too but I still think Western Scottish was my favorite as in both livery and area diversity and size it was a bit like their Ribble over the border. So I thought it was a pity when it's sprawling empire was split up and here in a busy Glasgow one of it's many Leyland Leopard Alexander Y-types operates under Clydside ownership on a service to Kilbirnie. A Scottish destination one could not imagine on a Ribble bus excepting of course after Deregulation as anything was possible then .
