Previously with Brighton & Hove as fleet number 915, this vehicle has now joined the Go North East fleet. It is one of the first in the batch to be amalgamated into Go North East's fleet, thought to be being disposed of by Brighton & Hove due to their increased length (11.9m) compared to a standard Scania OmniDekka (10.6m). Though the allocation of this vehicle is as-yet unknown; it will be repainted into Go North East's corporate livery prior to formally being allocated to a depot, and is likely to find use over the summer months on Special Events and contracts (such as the Sunderland Tall Ships Park & Ride services).
