Before the Metro was built, cross tyne services between the suburbs of Newcastle and Gateshead were the norm rather than the exception they are today. Here is an example of a service operating between Leam Lane Estate (Staneway/Woodburn) and Fawdon Lane (16) and Hollywood Avenue in Gosforth (17) via Heworth (before the interchange), Sunderland Road & Great North Road.

These service were operated jointly by the PTE (now Stagecoach Newcastle) and Northern.
