To replace the temporary branding for services 40, 43, 43A, 43B and 44 (vehicles wearing standard fleet livery with Stanley Shuttle vinyls applied), Go North East is to introduce new "The Diamond" branding in line with the simplification of the services which operate between Durham and Newcastle, via Stanley. This vehicle has now received The Diamond" branding, with 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.
