GNE Standard Liveries

Here are some of the Liveries through time as it were, first was the Standard “swoosh” Livery which is shown on Caeteno Compass 8285, this was then replaced by a  swirl livery which is shown by Go North East’s only Nimbus and another SPD. Nowadays most routes are branded, spare vehicles are supposed to be in Northern Livery but SPD’s are in all over yellow from the old Blaydon Racers brand they wore and are soon due for withdrawal so stay in the base colour as can be seen by 8222.



  1. wow

  2. Thanks Kieron 🙂

  3. To Thomas,

    Your very welcome.

    Are you planning to do the new ‘Simplicity’ Versas?


  10. To Thomas,

    Seems interesting haha :P, whats wrong with the ALX300?


  11. Hi Tony,

    Yeah it will be done, i’m just waiting till the list gets smaller.


  12. That’s S590 KJF

  13. If you’re wondering why I hate, it’s because it’s SO noisy, the OAP’S shout at me saying ” Lower the step” when I have it’s just so quiet.

  14. To Thomas,

    How odd, oh well, let’s hope you dont get it again :P.


  15. I won’t be driving it anymore :-)… Moving to Deptford, hopefully I’ll get to drive the new optare versas
