1979-1980 Diagrams

Now down-graded to day-time semi-fast services between King's Cross to York and Hull, although still retaining their hold on night-time Anglo-Scottish sleeping services, the Deltics would be concentrated to two English depots of Finsbury Park and York from the 13th April 1979. The Haymarket and Gateshead contingent moving to York for the onset of the new timetable.
 
From the start of the 1979 timetable and until the 20th August overnight trains ran via Carlisle, due to the collapse of Penmanshiel tunnel, daytime services terminated at Berwick from King's Cross and Dunbar form Edinburgh, with a connecting bus service operating between Berwick and Dunbar. One exception, the 1S12 05:50 King's Cross - Aberdeen ran via Carlisle and operated only as far as Edinburgh until normal service was resumed. The loco operating on the Edinburgh - Dunbar 'shuttles' during the day and often returning south via the 1E26 18:25 Edinburgh - York (via Carlisle).
 
Locomotives finding themselves in Scotland, after arrival with over-night sleeper services, would operate out and back trains between Edinburgh and Aberdeen during the day, returning on south-bound sleepers at night or enjoy a days rest at Haymarket before their return. From the summer timetable locomotives spare at York also found themselves on the out and back turns to Liverpool.
