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

Midland Fox DMS at Nuneaton TGX 859M

Midland Red had a number of important routes which many of us can still remember. One was the long and frequent 658 which ran between Leicester and Coventry via Nuneaton. For many years it was largely the preserve of the D9 and Hinckley which did a lot of the workings was unusual in normally operating hardly a single D7's and I can only remember seeing 4462. By the time Midland Red East had become Midland Fox the route had become the 158 but was still supporting double-deckers like this former London DMS at Nuneaton.
