This vehicle has received branding for "X-lines" service X21. X-lines is a new concept introduced by Go North East to set apart limited-stop routes from local bus services, with the buses featuring an eye-catching metallic gold base livery. Each group of services will feature a different colour rear, with plum used on services X6/X7 and X20 earlier in the year, and blue used for the X21. Although the iconic "Castles Express" brand will dissolve as a result of this re-brand, there will still be a nod to the magnificent castles along the route, by being included within the X-lines 'skyline' on the external branding, photographs included on the stringer panel internally, as well as commentary about these attractions on the audio announcements.
