To commemorate the fallen who have lost their lives in battle, Go North East has introduced a number of poppy-themed features across its services, on the lead up to Remembrance Day and in celebration of the centenary of World War One. While the nation remembers those who gallantly served their country in war, by wearing a poppy this November, this vehicle has been unveiled as Go North East's new 'poppy bus'. The latest vehicle further strengthens Go North East’s commitment to the cause, after being the first bus operator to launch a dedicated poppy vehicle almost a decade ago. The upgraded model will now be seen servicing routes throughout the region, although will usually be found on the Fab Fifty Six service operating between Sunderland and Newcastle. The striking white double deck vehicle is emblazoned with bright red poppies and features the text ‘Thank you’ alongside ‘All who served, sacrificed and changed our world. 1918-2018.’ Its tickets too, replicate the same wording and utilise the social media hashtag #thankyou100.

Due to Scania L94UB/Wright Solar 4949 (NK51 OLP) requiring repaint in line with its annual MOT test, and the promotional livery to support the Royal British Legion being refreshed prior to Remembrance Sunday, this vehicle has now lost its branding for the "Fab Fifty Six" service and has been repainted into a plain white base livery.
