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

Lowland Scottish National2 RFS 580V

As with the NBC the Scottish Bus Group was also broken up to be sold off by the Tories who believed public ownership was a sin burdened with trade unuions, workers rights, and a strange concept that one gave a service not just to make money. The part of Eastern Scottish which became Lowland drew a short straw when it came to viable operating territory but at least had an attractive livery as seen on this Leyland National2 in Edinburgh.
