This vehicle has received "The Blaydon Racer" branding. "The Blaydon Racer" is the new brand name for services 12/12A (Newcastle - Winlaton), which were previously branded as "Toon Link". The brand name recognises the famous Geordie folk song written in the 19th century by Geordie Ridley, in a style deriving from music hall, containing references to Scotswood Road, which services 12/12A serve on their route.
