Despite having established a strong brand identity, the Go-Ahead Group embarked on a number of autonomous area identities in the early 1990s. In part this is believed to have been to counteract the damage done during a prolonged industrial relations dispute; but it was also reflective of the company's desire to identify with the communities that it served. The liveries were as divisive in terms of opinions as they were different. Sunderland-based Wear Buses adopted a two-tone green and grey scheme applied in a striking style, which was later simplified.

The company was amongst the first north east operators to take the products of Northern Ireland-based Wrights, with a batch of Wright Handybus Dennis Darts. The association with Wrights was to prove more enduring than the Wear buses brand. This fictional image suggests what a later Wright Renown-bodied Volvo would have looked like in the original Wear Buses livery (02-Dec-11).

It's pleasing to see the reborn Eden company on its way to big bus company status with the recent acquisition of a Mini Pointer Dart. Here's another one to help it on its way. Possibly the most pleasing body style to come out of Wright's Ballymena factory, this is a Wright renown on a Volvo B10LE chassis. The actual vehicle was new to the GoAhead group in 2000 and remains in the GoAhead Northern fleet. The source picture was taken at Gateshead Metrocentre in May 2011 (Garry Luck).

This is the second bus to be featured in Northern Rail livery and, once again, the result possibly looks better than it does on some rail units. An interesting comment against the first image suggested that it looks like a cross between Arriva and First; indeed it's not difficult to see some similarity with Stagecoach, such are the trends in modern liveries. This time I'm not suggesting why Northern Rail should be operating buses (08-Sep-12).

This is not something that I set out to create, but a by-product of a commissioned image (same livery style, different colours) that has fallen by the wayside. I can't tell you much about the vehicle depicted, except that it is ex-Transdev Harrogate. The contemporary livery style, which has appeared in several fleets, looks good in most colour combination (01-Nov-13).

This is an opportunist image produced on the back of some commissioned work in an unrelated livery. Arriva introduced Wright bodywork to the Dutch market in 2002/3 with Cadet and Commander bodies on DAF SB120LF and SB200F chassis respectively, providing a 'strangely familiar' experience to British enthusiasts in the days before the pan-European Mercedes-Benz and Scania integrals had taken hold. Perhaps because of the latter development, it didn't follow up these initial purchases with later Wright-bodied buses such as this fictional Scania L94 with Wright Solar body (02-Dec-12).
