May 2017 Go North East
Having incurred defects uneconomical to repair, this vehicle has been withdrawn from service at Percy Main Depot. Dependent on the availability of spare parts from withdrawn Dennis Tridents due to be sold for scrap, it is subject to being reinstated, though it is planned to be permanently replaced later this year pending the arrival of a further cascaded Scania N94UD/East Lancs OmniDekka from Brighton & Hove, which will reduce the number of different vehicle types and standardise the fleet at Percy Main. Until its permanent replacement enters service, it is likely to be temporarily replaced by a Volvo B7TL/Plaxton President surplus to requirements at Stanley from 21st May.
