This vehicle has transferred from Saltmeadows Road Depot to Riverside, on temporary loan, to operate duplicate trips on "Crusader" service 27. Due to an obstruction on the line caused by high winds, the Tyne & Wear Metro service was suspended between Pelaw and South Shields in both directions from 15:25 to 18:45 on September 19th 2018. No Metro Replacement bus service was in operation, however Go North East had Metro ticket acceptance on all of its services parallel to the Tyne & Wear Metro system. To combat high passenger numbers, extra resources were also added into the operation of "Crusader" services 26/27 between Newcastle and South Shields.
