Prior to entering service; this vehicle has been repainted into a two-tone yellow and blue base livery, with branding expected to be applied for the "Toon Tour" service shortly. The yellow rear aims to stand out from other buses in Newcastle City Centre whilst also providing a synergy with the "Quaylink" Q1/Q2 and Q3 services which also operate in the same areas, while the blue keeps the brand in the new 'house style' albeit with a twist.
