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

It's Gone Off The Rails so I Wil Love You And Leave You

 It looks like my old blog won't function properly any more so thanks for that Blogger. I would like to thank you all for visiting me and especially those who have been good enough to leave comments. Those who still want to enjoy my photography can still see new postings by visiting me at Flickr where I am 'Call Sign Jojo'.

Darlington Marshall-Camair bodied Dennis Dominator

Darlington's buses were fairly conservative and mostly Roe Guy or Roe bodied double-deckers plodding about, but by the Eighties everything had changed. There were still a few lingering Daimler GVG5's but the rest was an interesting array of single-deckers including rarities like the Ward Dalesman, but more common was this Dennis Dominator albeit with Marshall Camair bodywork.
