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

One of the nicest things about being interested in transport is it often takes us to those places conventional tourists miss. One of these places despite it's historical importance being where the Swiss Confederation of Cantons was signed is hardly known never mind visited by Brits. Also it is the name of a small canton too which is why this bus carries it as SZ. Once Leyland seemed to have it's own empire of nations and a few even found their way into of all places Switzerland and this Worldmaster, one of a pair looks a bit unworldly carrying the sort of very Swiss bodywork normally found on Saurer DUK's and a few FBW's too.
