Go North East Try Enviro 400

Go North East have invested heavily in their fleet this year and have further orders for new vehicles due for delivery in 2013. The Wright Volvo B9TL combination seems to be the current favourite at the moment with all recent deliveries being of this type.
However, last week Go North East were operating an Enviro 400 demonstrator vehicle on the X1 service between Newcastle and Easington Lane. Sean Blair has sent us these pictures of the vehicle in operation.

 Go North East have taken deliveries of Wright Volvo B9TL's this year and have more on order. 
One of the B9TL's is seen here, alongside the Enviro demonstrator at Eldon Square Bus Station.

 The Enviro is being tried on the X1 route which has recently seen deliveries of Wright Volvo B9TL's like the one seen here operating on the route in August of this year.
