August 2017 Go North East
Though originally intended to return to service at Chester-le-Street on 9th August 2017, the diversion route continued on until this day due to the works on the Washington Highway being continued into this day. As such, a day later than expected, this vehicle has now returned to service at Chester-le-Street, with the "Red Arrows" X1 service returning to the route it usually operates.
August 2017 Go North East
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.

This vehicle has been treated to a partial repaint into Go North East's new corporate livery. The new livery design is a a lot more eye-catching and features a two-tone base livery, with the traditional key colour of red towards the front of the bus, and non-metallic dark blue towards the back. It is thought that further vinyls will be added at a later date, in order to reflect the quality and customer values of Go North East.
