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

National Extress Service 546

We don't see many National Express coaches calling in Stafford any more as they use the M6 as a by-pass and call in at Penkridge before the next main stop Wolverhampton. I recognised this driver as I sat at the front and talked to him when I returned from Stanstead on the 777. At this time in the late Nineties contractors like the Birmingham Coach company were encouraged to buy the standard Plaxton bodied Volvo B10M Expressliner as I think it was called.
