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

Trathens Skyliner STT 602X

I think this was taken on the Saturday during the rail strike of 1982 which caused chaos at Victoria Coach Station as everyone took to the roads.  I can't say I loved them myself but this Neoplan Skyliner of Trathens on a 'Rapide' contract for National Express certainly looked impressive as it squeezed passed other vehicles and bemused pedestrians wondering when they will get home.
