Latest bus announced in the livery of Go North East
Continuing the significant success of its 1/76 scale Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMC, Northcord Model Company is now releasing a sixteenth livery on the 10.9 metre long, single-door casting – UK6530 in the livery of Go North East. UK6530 represents fleet number 6341 (YX20 OKA) that was new to Go North East in early 2020. It carries a full and colourfully-branded livery for Xlines working route X71, heading to Consett.
The stand-out features of the branding are “TALKING BUS” and “WIFI USB” at the front; the big “Xlines” logos on both sides and rear, along with key locations served “fast into Newcastle, Sunniside, Stanley or Consett”, together with “bring your bike on board”, “comfortable, WIFI USB, talking bus, this is a low emission Euro 6 bus” with unique symbols respectively. Further slogans include “take a ride on the green machine”, “super low emission engines & stop start tech for a greener city”, “frequent, rapid links from Go North East” together with an icon illustration of the city on the rear. Furthermore, a full-length destination display is carried on both sides, with the offside one mounted amidships.
As 6341 is carrying the registration number with “OK”, it will create additional interest to the model collectors far away from the Newcastle and North east area. The “OK” recalls the link to the OK buses from the same area. The Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMC UK6530 is a one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the square, gasket-mounted windows and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible. Another main feature on the UK6530 model is its dual tree protectors at the front. The front dome on the model is significant, with curved windscreens on both upper deck and lower deck. The interior features the outstanding layout of the Enviro400 MMC, extensively portraying the handrails on both the upper and lower decks. The model is limited to 1,008 pieces worldwide.
