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

Midland Red Rides Again: Frontline in Rugeley PUA315W

Considering it is just a small town Rugeley saw more than it's fair share of operators and their liveries. One of the less well known was Frontline who made an appearance briefly and what looks like the First Group 'tomato soup' red might not be quite right but at first glace it reminds one of the all-red Midland Red buses that called here in BET days but before the bus station was opened. This was a Roe bodied Atlantean that started life with West Yorkshire PTE and I've a feeling First owned Frontline of Tamworth for a while before it was sold to Stevensons who were by that time part of  MRN.
