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

Trent Willowbrook 003 YRC 194

I've always admired Trent for the smartness of it's fleet which even extended to the unpopular shoddy Willowbrook 003 body. This Leopard in London even gained a cherished marque perhaps the owner hoped people might think it was older than it was lol. Even though it was not officially allowed even then drivers openly smoked even when they were likely to be seen by officials. Today of course it is quite different but one still sees a few drivers of commercials who smoke, not so much lorry drivers but tradesmen who are breaking the law if others use the vehicle as well. But with police resources so stretched it is one of those laws which is left up to management to enforce as the police have better things to do.
