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

Former Midland Red Fleetline 6263 at the Bull Ring

Most of Midland Red's final batch of Daimler Fleetlines went to garages in Birmingham and the Black Country and consequently found their way into the West Midlands PTE like former 6263. These were delivered as dual-entrance buses but this seen at the Bull Ring had had it's unpopular centre-exit removed. It was easy to tell the former Midland Red buses as they had Alexander bodywork whilst the Fleetline following by local MCW was the norm.
