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

Crosville Wrexham Depot Gems

Crosville had it's largest allocation at Wrexham and there was a large parking area at the rear but it was not easy to get around. On another occasion I turned up at lunchtime and one of the fitters told me the boss had gone for dinner but I could do it if I was quick before he got back. On the day I took this photo I wasn't so lucky but shot these two interesting buses through the open doorway as one of the Northern Counties bodied Daimler Fleetlines acquired from Southdown had been converted to open-top and by then the faithful old Lodekkas were starting to get very scarce even here.
