I seem to remember that there was say 3 trains one way and 4 the other from the station.
The amount of buses huge. I think there were at least 7 at Palmers.
Lots of the workers walked to work. I rode my bike to an Aunts then walked the rest in summer. Otherwise a bus.
I only got on the workers bus after work.
I cannot remember what I did after working overtime on a Tue & Thurs evening. In early 1960 I had a car ( when it was working). I sold that in September 1963.
When working in N/cle. It was travel by bus, I did have a car but only used it rarely. Parking in Gateshead near the Bridge on the east side. I must have parked in N/cle but blowed if I can remember where. I worked in Pilgrim St. and at Bottom of Grey St.
