This vehicle has entered service at Stanley Depot. Of the batch of thirteen former Go-Ahead London Volvo B9TL/Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 vehicles to be acquired by Go North East, six are to be branded for the "Toon Link" X70/X71 services, while the remaining seven are to carry Go North East's corporate livery. Three of the examples in Go North East's corporate livery are to be allocated to services 15/15A, and the remaining four act as spare vehicles for the double-deck services based at Stanley.

Prior to entering service, this vehicle has received "Toon Link" branding. A new vinyl has also been added to the first window on the nearside, close by the doors, which promotes the ability to pay by a contactless card on Go North East buses for any single, return or day tickets. As well as allowing the standard VISA and Mastercard credit and debit cards, payment via Apple and Android Pay on mobile devices is also permitted. The vinyl aims to catch the eye of those in a queue boarding the bus, promoting the ease of travelling on Go North East buses, with there no longer being a need to carry the correct amount of change to travel.
