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

NBC Watfordwide Atlantean AN 37

It had more than it's fair share of Leyland Nationals but London Country was definately one of the most interesting NBC fleets and at least a lot of it's elderly RT's were replaced with these attractively bodied Atlanteans by Park Royal instead of Bristol VR's. This is one of those quick jump out of cab and grab a photo shots of AN37 so I can't remember exactly where it was but not too far from Croxley.  Some nice detail here though including a yellow Commer telephones van and I wonder if that handy looking branch of Lloyds Banks is still there, I doubt it!

Chris The location is Garston, the bank you refer to is on Garston Park Parade and the bus garage is behind the AN. You can just see the admin block at the side of the bus roof. I lived in Garston for 27 years. Cannot say if the bank is still tehre as I have not been back since 2006.

Thanks Alan, yes I would have stopped off there for a quick peep if I was going passed.
