Many thanks to Dan who slowed down quite nicely so I could get this shot.

No problem - it went down a treat, we did well to keep to keep its appearance at the running day a secret!

I certainly wasn't expecting it until MetroCentre next week.

So what the plan for 6000 going forward Dan?

Heard a few mentioning a coastal service between Sunderland and South Shields today.

Nothing set in stone just yet - it was surplus to requirements at East Yorkshire, so absorbed into the Go North East Special Events fleet for now. It will potentially be used on special events such as airshow, as well as community engagement events and private hire work.

My bet is on something through Seaham, though it couldn't follow the x7 route because of that low bridge, could it? 

The was a crowd at the front of 6000 when we hopped on, so apologies for not spotting you, Dan.

Or do what some operators do and run it on random duplicate runs on various routes.

For examples dupes the following services working from current timetables...
Empty from Depot
1 - Whitley Bay (d 1001) to Newcastle (a 1118)
27 - Newcastle (d 1135) to South Shields (a 1249)
20 - South Shields (d 1302) to Sunderland (a 1336)
Then Lunch Break for Driver
78 - Sunderland (d 1441) to Chester Le Street (a 1523)
21 - Chester Le Street (d 1531) to Gateshead (a 1623)
97 - Gateshead (d 1638) to Metrocentre (a 1723)
Return to Depot

Not very ideal, I would prefer to see a service through the Tyne Tunnel if that is allowed?

Should put it out on the likes of the 1, 50/50A and 309 when the weather is nice and warm like what Lothian do.
