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

DAB Articulated Bus in Sheffield C103 HDT

Very much a feature in SYT days were the DAB Leyland articulated buses seen in Sheffield, an idea that has still to take off in Britain especially following their unpopularity in London.

The anti-bendi feeling in this country amuses me, especially the repeated claims that bendis aren't suited for (or safe on) our narrow streets.

I've travelled on bendis in Germany around on roads far narrower than those in London, as I'm sure you have too, and I think that what people are really saying is "British road users are too incompetent/impatient/stupid to alter their driving/cycling style when a bendi is on the road" - which is not exactly a glowing endorsement of the abilities of the British road users.

[That's nicely contentious. Maybe some of the lurkers will emerge and post to tell me I'm clueless!]

Ross don't hold your breath this is not Twitter or Facebook. One thing you didn't mention is people on bikes shouldn't be that bemmused and scared of bendis after all we've had articulated lorries in Britain for years.
