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

South Notts Leyland Titan RRR912 dumped at Gotham

The South Notts garage at Gotham was definitely worth a visit for as well as recent stock there were a few withdrawn buses slowly decaying in the yard too including this 1954 Weymann bodied Leyland PD2/20. The bus alongside was similar but being four years newer had a little longer to go yet. Gotham always makes one think of Batman of course but I think the locals call it 'Goatham'. So none of his enemies were out and about except perhaps 'horsefly man' as I got one of those stings that you don't even notice till it goes red and swells. When I got home I had to get it treated in A&E as my hand had swollen up like a Michelin Man. Obviously they don't like people taking photos lol.
