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.
