They can use centrelink. Double deckers turn left before the low bridge and go down to the Swing Bridge. This is the same way that the 10 goes every morning during rush hour.

The second version is the standard offering.

I believe Wrightbus no longer provide the first version as standard, so if an operator wanted this styling, it would incur a greater cost.

It was out on the North Tyne Links services yesterday, and is on the 434/448 today.

With 8266 getting a internal refurbishment - i would imagine this could confirm that this Merit will not leave once the Streetlites arrive?

Or is it just adding value on to them?

It could have certainly done with the seats being retrimmed, as it's a mix, match of different moquettes, although it's pretty difficult to keep the moquettes the same considering it came from dealer stock, so GNE don't have the moquette to match. Just hope the same doesn't happen to the Red Kite B9's in the future.

I believe it runs light to Guide Post, then 448 to Bedlington Station, a few rounds on the 434 before either heading light from Ashington (Weds only) or 434 to Bedlington Station before doing the return 448 to Guide Post then light to depot. 

I think it might be spare until it gets shunted and cleaned, I could be wrong?
