Here are the timetables for the 26/27 bus service that ran along the current ’30’ route from Fawdon into Newcastle. then along Durham Road into Low Fell. The 26 terminated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and operated, what was once the ’92’ route (then the M31/M32), via Church Road and Wynbury Road. And the ’27’ operated via Beacon Lough Road and Easedale Gardens into Wrekenton.

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.
