CENTRAL MIDDLESEX HOSPITAL - Acton Lane - Station Road - Willesden Junction - Old Oak Common Lane - East Acton - Old Oak Road - Uxbridge Road - Blomfontein Road - South Africa Road - Wood Lane  -  White City Bus Station - Westfields Way - Shepherds Bush CL Station - Holland Park Avenue - Ladbroke Grove - double run via Canal Way to Sainsbury's - Harrow Road - Elgin Avenue - Chippenham Road - Shirland Road - Malvern Road - MAIDA HILL Chippenham

DML44063 crosses the Great Western tracks at Ladbroke Grove. The blind is wrong on both counts - the route does not reach Maida Vale and Shirland Avenue is non existent.
A lot of drivers showed HARROW ROAD Police Station as an alternative
