This vehicle has transferred from Stanley Depot to Hownsgill. After two and a half years of development, the region’s largest bus operator, Go North East opened the doors to its brand new £3.5 million, state-of-the-art Hownsgill Depot in Consett, County Durham, on Friday 15 March 2019. The high-tech operation replaces the company’s Stanley Depot, which it operated from for nearly 100 years. Therefore; most vehicles based at Stanley transferred to Hownsgill on Sunday 7 April, the date from which the new depot commenced operations.

With the output for the double-deck boards on "Toon Link" services X70/X71 being revised to newly-acquired Volvo B9TLs from Go-Ahead London back in March 2018, the three remaining "Toon Link" branded Scania N94UD/East Lancs OmniDekka vehicles were re-allocated to the St. Bede's scholars services operated from Stanley Depot. Initially these buses were not going to be repainted into fleet livery, but due to a gap in the paint plan schedule and in line with other brands being removed following a review, this vehicle has now been repainted into Go North East's corporate livery. This example carries the tagline "Never miss your stop | Many of our buses have next stop screens and announcements".

This vehicle has received "Northern" branding, which is the new brand name for services 6 and X70/X71. As part of recent service changes, new service 6 was introduced as a replacement for the northern section of the old "Diamond" 43/44 services, so the name is appropriate for the route as well as commemorating the company's heritage with a fresh modern outlook on the "Northern" name.
