Go North East: 7140 / BD68TXJ

Go North East's brand new "National Express" branded Volvo B11RT/Caetano Levante 3 7140 (BD68 TXJ) is pictured here in Caetano UK Ltd's yard on Mill Lane, Coalville, prior to delivery to Go North East. 10/02/19


Go North East have ordered five new coaches for the National Express contracts which the company operates. This follows the purchase of seven similar examples on the Scania K360EB4 chassis a few months ago, during November 2018, for East Yorkshire Motor Services.


These coaches have been ordered to replace the oldest stock at Chester-le-Street Depot's Coaching Unit, although only four of the coaches released will be withdrawn and disposed of, owing to the PVR increase in the Coaching Unit last year.


Due to an issue at the DVLA with registering the original registration marks, 7138 - 7142 surrendered their BD68xxx registration marks prior to delivery and were re-registered to BM68xxx series registration marks.


7138 will now be registered BM68 AHA

7139 will now be registered BM68 AHC

7140 will now be registered BM68 AHD

7141 will now be registered BM68 AHE

7142 will now be registered BM68 AHF
