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

Plymouth CityBus Atlantean TTT 164X and Dennis Dart L112 YOD

Plymouth Citybus more or less stayed with a red based livery but never seemed satisfield with the right scheme, I can see the thinking for either there was too much black or should it tempered down with some grey etc.. I must admit I prefered it when during the AN68 Atlantean Era when they returned to the more tradition red and cream scheme with black wheels and typeface in gold. Unlike the Atlantean and buses like the Western National Bristol VR also very much a feature here I doubt many of us will really miss the little Dennis Dart but do feel a bit of affection for that ubiquitous workhorse. I think perhaps I warm to it as new buses usually replaced more exciting types but many of these replaced the minibus which I think we all despised so for once they gave us a plus..
