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: The White Ladt Rides Again

Stagecoach reminded us of it's local Ribble heritage at the Morecambe Running Day in 2018 with this Dennis Trident converted to an open-topper and marketed as The White Lady. Though I doubt if the general public would have guessed why but for the enthusiast the silver stripes were a nice reminder of the metal beading which adorned the original Leyland Titan PD1 and PD2 buses built between 1948 and 1951. Indeed Stagecoach has one of the Burlingham bodied PD1's in preservation and I'm sure a lot of people would have liked to have seen the two together.
