August 2017 Go North East
Though originally intended to return to service at Washington 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 Washington, with the "Red Arrows" X1 service returning to the route it usually operates.

This vehicle has transferred from Washington Depot to Chester-le-Street. While this vehicle is allocated to Chester-le-Street Depot; it should be allocated to services 13/X25, which will allow a fleet livery Wright Solar bodied Scania L94UB to temporarily transfer to Washington Depot. These temporary transfers coincide 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.
