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

Nottingham City Leyland Lion D394 TAU

Nottingham went through a phase where it thought it worthwhile to have bumpers added to the front of it's new buses. In the past it was not very common and unlike these solid looking cast-iron affairs probably the bits of rather cosmetic chrome seen on the likes of M&D stock would not have been substantial or robust enough to bare a hot drivers weight on sunny day never mind withstand a collision. Nottingham has always been legendry for it's interesting buses and at least the City Transport was able to continue that tradition these rare Leyland Lion buses in 1985 also delivered to Eastern Scottish for service in the Edinburgh area.
