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

Newcastle Atlanteans

For a number of years a trip to a town or city with it's own bus fleet meant we were treated to the screech and roar of the Atlantean, Newcastle on Tyne had a large fleet as did Northern General which included Gateshead and District. Of all the PTE liveries I think I like that on Tyneside which retained yellow and cream even into it's later post Deregulation Busways day,. most had Alexander or lookalike fronted bodies by MCW.
