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

Get Knotted!

This First Potteries Omnicity Scania 65041 used on the Hanley to Stafford 101 Service has appeared in a brash new livery featuring the Staffordshire Knot. It looks a bit too colourful for my tastes even a bit like a sickly chocolate wrapper. However what the bold new branding doesn't tell you is First now offer a poorer service as the basic frequency has now fallen to every thirty-minutes instead of every twenty and no doubt a lot of  101 regulars will not be too impressed.
