I've found a new Quaylink timetable and the updated map for Hillgate Quay.
I haven't been to the stop in person, but it's been updated online.

I was walking along Market Street earlier today and noticed the eastbound (towards Gateshead/St Peter's Basin) bus-stop has had its timetable updated to reflect the changes. 

The flag on the stop, however, still shows Q1/Q2.

The timetables in the Gateshead area have been updated, too. I didn't look at any of the timetables in the City Centre, but none of the timetables along the Quayside had been updated (these arguably being some of the most important, given that the Q2 will now go to Gateshead instead of St Peter's Basin).

Were they different to the usual Nexus liners?

The one on Market Street appeared to look different, showing both routes and highlighting the locations of various tourist attractions. The timetable itself was in its usual Nexus format - with service Q2 terminating at Heworth Metro.

The stops on the old Orbit 51/52 routes (that I saw) had the normal Nexus liners. See Wrekenton High Street liners here.

I'll double check the one in Gateshead Interchange tomorrow as I think this one was yellow (although as the stop is shared with the Citylink, it was only small and had no map to my memory).

Brilliantly informative timetable at Thompson Street Post Office in Darlington.

It's only missing the times for the 7, 8, 16, 21 and X66! I'll be honest I am amazed that the Dalesbus and Moorsbus services are on it.

This monstrosity disappeared off the Connect Tees Valley website for a while, but it appears it's made a comeback!

Aside from the fact it looks like it's been cobbled together in MS Paint, it doesn't actually tell the user much at all.

Bearing in mind the point of a transit map should be that it can be given to a person with no knowledge of the area and they can fathom out what goes where and where they can catch it. 

The town centre is a mess, there's no way a person could reasonably work out what services are included in the technicolour loop. Then there's the colours themselves, I'm not sure of the reasoning the way services have been grouped. Some services which have widely varying destinations are shown as the same colour (X10, X17), yet some services which have similar routes & destinations are given unique colours (12, 13, 14). 

The white circles are the most peculiar feature. I presume they represent bus stops, but only some are shown. Out of the ones that are shown, most are without labels, meaning they just sit around rather anonymously. There's no way a person could use the map to work out the departure location of their service. On saying that, maybe they're not actually bus stops, as the Newport Roundabout is reprinted as a single point, which suggests every service passing through calls at a single interchange point, including the ones whizzing overhead on the A66. 

The rest of the resources provided by Connect Tees Valley are quite good, hopefully someone there can have a look at this one.

Incorrect data on the legend too. One that jumps out, are the services along the A66.
