Gateshead's Deltic locomotives were not the normal motive power on the "Queen of Scots Pullman" services as Finsbury Park and Haymarket were given the responsibility to cover the diagrams. However, on the 30th May 1964, only two weeks before the service was withdrawn, D9008 "THE GREEN HOWARDS" races south at Castle Hills, near Northallerton, with the Edinburgh to Leeds leg of the 1E14 11:00 Glasgow Queen St. - King's Cross service.
