How much is he going to spaff Creating Desire?

If you need someone to draw some angled lines in Illustrator I'm more than happy to undercut them by 1p

This can't be real can it? 

It's got to be a micky take?

Congratulations on your new venture Dan. Bold move to go out and do it alone, I wish you every success and you'll never grow old wondering 'what if'.

Is it too soon to start a Northstar Service Suggestions thread?

There are a lack of services on the Coast Road corridor at the moment. Perhaps someone could suggest something....?

If NS was going to do put themselves out there as 'red meat' (sadly no Scania L113's), I'd syggest 2x former routes that could give some competition........

- 604 - Low Prudhoe to Newcastle

- X44 - Marden Estate loop - Hillheads - NT Hospital - Billy Mill - All stops to Willington Square then non-stop to Newcastle City Centre

Jokes aside with the routes, quite a smart move fron Dan, especially the way things could go with franchising in the future.

Not digging the livery if I'm being honest, probably the fact the dithering just randomly stops looks awkward from a distance.

Also, 412, could have at least started with 420

Wonder which design agency was involved in it?

I genuinely think there was a missed opportunity with the name mind. 
Would have been a perfect opportunity to advertise the forum and link our very own Daniel's commercial connections.

Oh totally and do you know what we need more independents like this especially if GCT needs competition for Nexus secured routes
