Having been required to enter service temporarily in Bluestar's corporate livery, this vehicle has now been taken out of service to enable completion of repaint and fitment of a cab door vandal screen. This example has now been repainted into Go North East's corporate livery and carries the tagline "Our buses run 35 million miles a year - that's like going to the moon and back 72 times".

This vehicle has entered service at Saltmeadows Road Depot, which from Monday 3rd September 2018 has re-opened as an operational depot to house the operation of some Nexus Miscellaneous Works contracts contracts. The depot's bodyshop and stores facility also remains in use at Saltmeadows. As there was not sufficient time to repaint these vehicles prior to entering service; they currently remain in Bluestar livery with Go North East fleet names, but are intended to be repainted on a one-for-one basis in the near future.

New to Southern Vectis in June 2007 as fleet number 452, this vehicle was previously in the fleet of Bluestar as fleet number 2452. It was released from Bluestar in line with the upgrade of the "Unilink" services to brand new Dennis Trident 2/Alexander Enviro 400MMC vehicles, which has seen the re-allocation of the current "Unilink" vehicles to service 17 to allow the withdrawal of this batch of Mercedes Citaros. The entire batch have been acquired by Go North East, ahead of changes to Nexus Miscellaneous Works contracts, which has seen Go North East being awarded with over 70 contracts for the 2018/19 academic year. This example has been re-numbered to 5482 in Go North East's fleet.
