Representing an investment of over £1.5m, this batch of vehicles are believed to be in line to upgrade "Pronto" services X21 and X46. These vehicles feature the latest technology, and are fitted with Daimler 4-cylinder, 5.1-litre OM934 Euro-6 Emission compliant engines. Internally; they feature Esteban Civic V3 seating complete with e-leather; four tables on the upper saloon; two-colour Tarabus 'Wood Effect' flooring; and blue accent lighting, which is fitted underneath seats, to provide extra light on the gangway.
The first vehicle which arrived last week, 6302 (NK16 BXB), has now received "The Castles Express" branding. "The Castles Express" will become the new brand name for service X21, replacing "Pronto", when the new vehicles are launched on these services. The X21 service links Newcastle, Chester-le-Street, Durham and Bishop Auckland, all of which have prominent historic castles.
