This vehicle has entered service at Blyth Depot, and has additionally received "Sapphire" branding with sub-branding for service 6, ahead of its impending transfer to Belmont Depot. It is thought that the allocation of this vehicle to Blyth Depot will only be temporary, whilst vehicles in Blyth's own fleet undergo repaint and refurbishment.

It is currently undergoing repaint and refurbishment to "Sapphire" specification at Thornton Brothers, Ashington.
