Go North East: 6142 / YN04GJZ
Go North East's unallocated Scania N94UD/East Lancs OmniDekka 6142 (YN04 GJZ), which presently retains Brighton & Hove's corporate livery minus fleet names, is pictured here at Saltmeadows Road Depot, Gateshead, prior to entering service. 27/09/16
Released from Brighton & Hove following the entry into service of brand new Wright StreetDeck vehicles on the company's 1 service; this vehicle, previously numbered previously numbered 627 within the Brighton & Hove fleet, has now arrived at Go North East and will undergo preparation for service within the Go North East fleet at Saltmeadows Road Depot.
It, alongside 6141 (YN04 GJY) which was also collected by Go North East on Sunday gone, will be allocated to Washington Depot to replace Volvo B7TL/Plaxton President vehicles. This will provide a higher seating capacity on Washington's scholars services, as well as a younger and more reliable vehicle on peak-time journeys on "Red Arrows" service X1, which run off scholars services.
