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.

Another ‘Cross-Tyne’ service between Newcastle and Gateshead. The 24/25 started in North Kenton and followed more or less the same route between North Kenton and Grainger Street as the 10/11 do now (before they were diverted to serve the University and RVI). When they got to Gateshead, they followed the classic 24/25 routes to their respective destinations before they were merged into one 24 service and then absorbed into the Coaster-branded ‘2’.
