I found this booklet of travel instructions from a trip to Norway in 1967. Trains Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle Central and Tyne Commission Quay. Just change platforms at Newcastle, walk from the platform at TCQ through the transit shed and on to the ship.
Now it is a double deck bus to the Quay, but this is totally inadequate with virtually no space for luggage. What a blessing was Dr. Beeching and not much appreciated. See image 35716
