CRYSTAL PALACE -- HAMPSTEAD HEATH South End Green (Sat and Sun)
New route replaces Route 63 and 239 at weekends

The 63A had provided a week-end service between King's Cross and Hampstead Heath in lieu of the Monday-Friday 239.
As part of the changes in January 1970 that link was lost; the diversion of the 214 via Camden Town replaced that part of the 239 & 63A, but the only King's Cross - Hampstead Heath
service now ran via Kentish Town (45 weekdays, amended 63 Sundays).
