I was going to post these old inter conurbation routes between Newcastle and Gateshead in some sort of order. But it dawned on me after posting the 24/25 timetable that the ’10’ was indeed operational in 1979. All services are operated jointly by PTE and Northern.

The ‘8’ more or less operates the same route as either the 15 or 15A (I can’t remember) does now between Newcastle and Kenton Bar Estate. It then operates via the current ‘Fab 57’ route to Fewster Square where it terminates.

The ‘9’ operates via the current 31 route between Montagu Estate and Newcastle then the ‘Fab 56’ route to Springwell Estate.

The ’10’ operates similar to its current route between North Kenton and Town (except it goes via Great North Road instead of Claremont Road) then, like the ‘9’ operates along the current ‘Fab 56’ route to Springwell Estate.
