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

Now A Distant Memory The Leyland National TOF 703S

It is so long now since the long reign of the Leyland National ended in a funny way I rather miss them, however there are a lot of buses I miss a lot more. But they were certainly a familiar sight in Stafford and as well as having all eleven of Chaserider's Mk2's at one point some of the earlier ones had their roof pods removed to go under a low bridge on the way to Rugeley. Formerly No.703 this bus heading west into former G.H.Austin (Happy Days) territory and bound for Eccleshall and Knightly had been renumbered to 903 to show it had been modified.
