This vehicle has transferred from Chester-le-Street Depot to Washington. Released from Chester-le-Street following the temporary transfer of four "Red Arrows" branded Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 bodied Volvo B9TLs to operate services 13/X25; the temporary transfer of this vehicle to Washington coincides with a short notice road closure by Sunderland City Council, which means that northbound buses on "Red Arrows" service X1 are unable to run direct along the Washington Highway on 7th and 8th August 2017, and will need to be diverted along Bonemill Lane, via Fatfield Bridge and Station Road to Shiney Row. Due to the low bridge in the area, double-deck vehicles cannot be allocated to the X1 service during this time.
