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

Maidstone & District AEC Reliance 32 YKK at Knightrider Street Garage

The BET Group used this pleasant frontal design on it's first 36ft sallons for a short time only before curved screen came along and with the exception of Midland Red which was able to order one-hundred they were delivered in relitively smallish numbers. I was at Maidstone in 1967-8 and it's two DP's were there at the same time having previously worked from Sheerness. It looks as though SC32 which had been renumbered to 2532 had just had a fresh coat of paint in this view at Knightrider Street.
