10 November 2019

Repaints last week included Wright StreetDeck 6301 (NK16 BXA) into the 2019 fleet livery and former East Yorkshire Volvo B5TL/Wright Eclipse Gemini 3 796 (BF63 HDC) into the generic grey/charcoal Xlines livery. This vehicle is now numbered 6334 within the Go North East fleet.

The three new ADL Trident 2/ADL Enviro 400MMCs for Consett – 6338, 6339 and 6340 – entered service at Consett on Saturday 9 November 2019, having been treated to a partial repaint at the rear into a darker green base livery at Thorntons prior to entering service. A publicity launch took place at Tanfield Railway to mark the investment on Sunday 10 November.

As a result, the four East Lancs OmniDekka bodied Scania N94UDs have been displaced as follows

  • 6123 and 6128 Consett to Saltmeadows
  • 6136 Consett to Riverside
  • 6162 Consett to Chester-le-Street

As 6337 (YY64 GWX) is not yet ready to enter service, Scania N94UD/East Lancs OmniDekka 6137 (GX03 SVF) has transferred from Saltmeadows to Consett. The four similar examples allocated previously were due safety inspection this week and therefore could not remain at Consett.

Due to the return of the buses which temporarily transferred to Consett, 6164 (YN54 AOP) has now been withdrawn from service at Saltmeadows Road for paint preparation.

The final V-reg Plaxton President bodied Volvo B7TL in the fleet, 6033 (V233 LGC), has now been withdrawn from service at Riverside due to MOT expiry.
