January 2018 Go North East
The entry into service of the Volvo B5LH/Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 vehicles at Percy Main on "Coaster" services 1/1A will allow the Scania CN230UB/Scania Omnicity vehicles currently allocated to these routes to be displaced elsewhere. The majority are planned to be cascaded to "Blue Arrow" service 11, providing an upgraded allocation on this route and allowing the withdrawal of the branded Scania L94UB/Wright Solar allocation, while the others are being distributed among Percy Main, Stanley and Washington, for various purposes. This vehicle has been replaced in the fleet at Percy Main by one of the Scania CN230UB/Scania Omnicity vehicles which will remain at Percy Main on "Blue Arrow" service 11, and, having incurred defects uneconomical to repair, has been withdrawn from service ahead of the OmniCitys being allocated to the route.
