Still there at 4pm, with towing wagon in attendance. Delays of at least 20 mins on Harborne routes.

There was a Platinum on the other side too parked up before the bus stop. Don't know if that was broken down too.

The WB89 broke down in Church Road Smethwick yesterday city bound, couldn't catch the bus number, as I was sitting at the back of the bus the passengers were transferred onto. The empty bus then went up Church Road to the traffic lights and turned into Bearwood Road, I guess heading back to garage.
Closest routes, 89, 21, 120, 120A, 48, 48A
