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

AEC Reliance EPM 136V Flight Line 777

A gentleman needing assistance patiently waits for the Victoria Coach Station Inspector to finish giving instructions to a driver of most probably a Duple Dominant bodied Leyland Leopard. By this time the AEC Reliance was getting rare within the NBC empire but in the south East Kent, National Travel SE (Formerly Timpsons) and London Country had some late examples as can be seen here EPM 136V dated from 1979 and had a Plaxton body and was used as seen on the 777 Flightline Express to Gatwick.
