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

Stagecoach Dennis Trident in Exeter WA04FOD

By coincidence this Stagecoach Alexander Dennis Trident seen leaving Exeter Bus Station carried a reminder of the old registration system with it's FOD as that was a Devon marque. Once it was a hive of activity especially in the days when the lower coach station was full of tour coaches or a Bank Holiday Serge of express coaches and reliefs heading to and from the West Country. I went there many times before it was run down and then closed yet I still can't remember if it's Paul Street or Paris Street.

It's only half-closed! 7 bays at Paris Street remain in use whilst the Coach & Bus Station site is being redeveloped, eventually to include a new (smaller) Bus Station.

Thanks, I thought it might have completely gone. It had a certain individuality and charm but no doubt the new one will look like all the others mostly glass and CCTV camera.
