Artics Arrive At Their New Home

Ten of the displaced ex London artics have reached the north east and some of them have already been painted in the gold livery of the Go North East 58 "Citylink" route on which they will run. The painting is being carried out by Thorntons in Ashington, Northumberland and this photo was taken of one of the vehicles (a 57 reg). It was necessary to climb a small tree to take the photo! - more photos to follow when the vehicles are out on the road. The 58 route runs between Hadrian Park and Heworth via the  Coast Road, Newcastle city centre, Felling and Leam Lane.
