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

East Yorkshire Open-Top RE PHN 177L

The double deck open-top sightseeing bus is a much more familiar sight than it used to be when it was confined to the sea front. Indeed it can be found on sightseeing duties in any number of cities around the world. However this former United Auto Bristol RE was a very rare example in being of the single-deck variety and with East Yorkshire had recieved the much missed old traditional livery for work in Scarborough.

Would I be right in guessing you were looking round withdrawn vehicles parked up in the depths of the yard?
It looks like there aren't any tax or licence discs displayed, that's what makes me wonder.

Yes Ross, East Yorkshire kept it's vehicles on the bus and coach park beside the railway across from the station. This one was tucked away right in the corner and I had trouble getting it into my viewfinder but I felt it was one of the best buses I snapped that lovely day.
