Only body vinyls are removed by Bus & Coach World, Blackburn. Window vinyls are removed when the new branding is fitted.

Well after what Dan’s just said, I’d like to hope North Tyneside ticket offers on the window stickers would also be removed when they apply branding.
These were hammered on the 21 or have I got my wires crossed?

What is happening with the trial on the conversion?

I know that, that's why I said it's also the reason why the others haven't been removed too
Everyone will be happy to know that 3 out of 4 of the Volvo B5LH are actually branded now with the X5/X15 now. Still parked up in the same place but has now received the branding

The golden headrests look distinctive for Go North East.
First one has arrived at Percy Main, and it looks really nice. Also it has tables which is a nice feature.

I really do think the X-lines livery looks best on the Gemini 2 body, especially the front end.

It definitely looks better than the StreetDeck that are currently on the X5/X15
3 out of the 4 X lines hybrids were seen at Consett depot this morning. Not long left for the streetdecks now.
I will miss the Streetdecks as they did suit the X-Lines Yellow Livery.
But to B5’s get treated like this is great.
Shame this will be the more popular B5LH and ruin the Diamonds moment.
But I do understand the changes that are needed to tackle allocations for the Newcastle LEZ
