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 West Tiger A895 KCL 1011 in Birmingham

Some of First's liveries before the Barbi Years were pretty awful like First Bradford but others weren't bad at all. Midland Red West bus stayed true to the Midland Red brand but made the buses look individual enough not to be mistaken for the NBC or the old Midland Red. With lots of long trunk routes into Birmingham coaches were popular here and a Leyland Tiger formerly with Ambassador comes into Birmingham on the 192 another reminder of the old Midland Red which stil went  to Ludlow via Kidderminster and which once could also boast Leylands as both Ludlow and Kidderminster had the Leylnd PD2/20 LD8 class also chosen to do longer routes.
