In the sixties the number 3 ran from the city, I'm not sure if it was Bull Street or Colmore Row to the junction of Ridgacre Lane and Quinton Rd West.
 
That rings a bell, Phil, and I think the #9 and #10 went out Quinton way as well.

What about the 9, was that not the City Circle and the 10 was that the Inner Circle?

My local routes were the #53 & #54 which went out to Stechford along Bordesley Green (I think one went via Deritend and the other via Fazeley Street), and the Coventry Road Routes #57 out to the Rover Works at Lode Lane, #58 to Sheldon and #60 to Cranes Park Estate.
 
Going-to-work buses were the #28 (City to Great Barr via Small Heath, Ward End, Castle Bromwich, Erdington & Short Heath), and the Tyburn Road Routes #66 to Pype Hayes and #67 to Castle Vale.

The City Circle was #19, Inner Circle was #8 and Outer Circle was #11.

Hi all,

         There used to be #34, though I think this was a 'part time' servis as it only seemed to run mornings & early evenings. I think it followed the same route as #33 from Finchley Rd. terminus in Kingstanding to city centre.

         I think the #25 ran from West Bromwich to Sutton Coldfield via Kingstanding, this later became #451. I'm sure this route was operated by West Bromwich transport #29, the bus colour could've been green, but I could be wrong. I'm sure someone can correct this.

Harper's of Heath Hayes ran green buses on the north side of Brum  -  maybe it was one of their routes.     I've been on the #451 and it's an interesting ride! O0

Going-to-work buses were.............the Tyburn Road Routes #66 to Pype Hayes and #67 to Castle Vale.
 
I think the #64 travelled along the same roads as far as Salford Bridge and then carried on up Gravelly lane to Erdington.

I never used them, roy.    It would make sense if one of them went to the Kings Heath dog track via Leopold Street (which the #50 avoided).       
 
I've got books at home with all the routes in, but looking at them would be cheating  -  if not knowing is destroying your life I could look it up and PM you later in the week! ;D
