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

Tyne and Wear OTN 422R Metro-Scania Metropolitan

It's a shame they turned out to be 'rust buckets' but I rather liked the sophisticated Metro Scania Metropolitan double-decker.  Tyne and Wear PTE bought about 180 which was probably not a wise choise with the harsh winters and  need for salt on the roads.
