Ahead of transfer to Stanley Depot where this vehicle will be allocated to "The Diamond" services 43/44, this vehicle has gained "The Diamond" branding, albeit without sub-branding for the 43/44 services. Early expansion of the Go-Ahead Northern empire saw the acquisition of certain smaller competing bus operators in North East England, during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Northern acquired JH Hammell (Diamond) on 30th December 1994, which this brand refers to.
