This vehicle has lost its branding for "The Castles Express", having been repainted into Go North East's 2019 fleet livery. In order to improve reliability on service X21, the spare vehicles for "Angel" service 21 will instead form part of the main fleet allocation on "X-lines" service X21, with the older StreetDecks repainted into fleet livery and used as spare vehicles for service 21 instead.
