This vehicle, which received a country-themed version of the Big Days Out livery on the "Angel" base livery, now acts a spare vehicle for the "Coaster" 1/1A services, which operate on a shared corridor with the "Angel" 21 service. To reduce potential confusion caused by a bus which looks similar to that of the new "Angel" branded Wright StreetDecks on the 21 service, this vehicle has had the front end of the bus painted blue so it looks more similar to the "Coaster" branded allocation.

Following the entry into service of new double-deck vehicles on "Angel" service 21, representing a £4.3 million investment, this vehicle has transferred from Chester-le-Street Depot to Percy Main. Retaining its promotional livery for the "Big Days Out" campaign, this vehicle will act as the dedicated spare vehicle for "Coaster" services 1/1A (Whitley Bay - Wallsend - Newcastle - Gateshead).

This vehicle has been stripped of "Angel" branding and has received a promotional livery for Go North East's "Big Days Out" campaign. The campaign, which was originally introduced in the summer of 2017 but will now be ongoing for the foreseeable future, has seen Go North East partner up with a number of attractions and businesses to bring its customers some great family offers. Customers who buy a £10 Family Day Ticket are eligible for discounts at venues involved in the partnership. This bus is one of four which will receive a promotional livery for the campaign - each example is different, with this one having a country theme. The livery intends to raise awareness of this campaign and the company's Family Day Ticket, which permits travel for up to two adults and three children under 16 in all zones. The introduction of this campaign has also seen the ticket price reduce from £13 to £10 on-bus (matching the cheaper price previously on the mobile app).
