Following the entry into service of new Wright Streetlites on "Black Cats" services 2/2A and 39, this vehicle has transferred from Deptford Depot to Riverside. At Riverside, this vehicle will act as a temporary replacement for VDL SB120/Wright Merit 8266 (NK04 ZNE), which has been withdrawn having sustained defects uneconomical to repair. The Metrocentre Shuttle S1 service is due to be withdrawn from Sunday 23rd July and replaced by an extended X66 service on a lower frequency, when this vehicle will be cascaded to operate services 67 (Metrocentre - Wardley) and 69 (Winlaton - Wardley) at Riverside.
