GNE Venture Solo SR

gne logo

Following on from the 100 vehicle order at Go North East the next batch of vehicles included 12 Optare Solo SR M890’s for the outstation at Consett for the local ‘Venture’ services V1/V2/V3/V4/V5/V6/V8/V9. They are built to the Euro5 specification and also have next-stop information screens and announcements built-in. They replaced the ageing Dennis Dart MPD’s that previously worked the route and were painted in a much more striking and attractive livery bringing back the days of the original Venture bus company with the maroon and custard yellow livery. The newer MPD’s then got transferred to Peterlee to replace the older MPD’s working the ‘East Durham’ services. The first of the batch; 641 NL63 YBA; is showing the livery working a V8 service.

  1. Nice one Keiron,

    All these new posts certainly bring the website up to date again!

    Also, are you doing 8266 in its new S1 livery?

    All the best,

  2. To Arriva1581,

    Yep regular updates will commence. Thanks for that, I entirely forgot about that livery
