By mid 1969 viscounts had been relegated to Melbourne - Canberra - Sydney (that is all Canberra was seeing at the time apart from the odd L188 and F27), 1 service a week Melbourne-Alice Springs via Adelaide, a weekend service Sydney-Coolangatta, the Melbourne - Wynyard - Devonport run (twice daily), and some weekend services Melbourne - Launceston - Hobart. It was all downhill from there. Melbourne being Essendon as Tulla did not operate domestics untill Jun 71.
