What happened at Wood Lane in 1949

On 28/09/1949, a total of 21 varied vehicles were transferred into Wood Lane, 8 from a variety of bus garages, the remainder from Chiswick. Many then lost their trade plates, being licensed as goods vehicles. This seems to coincide with the completion of modernisation work at the adjoining White City Central Line Depot.

I now believe these movements were in connection with the formation of CDS (Central Distribution Services), although the moves to Wood Lane appear to have been either short-lived or un-realised. The next reference to each of the vehicles concerned shows them as being in the CDS Gp.3 Chiswick Pool.
