I’ve just had a look through Ken Blacker’s book ‘RT’ (Capital Transport,1979) and he states that ‘in November 1971 the order went out to garages to remove the discs.
A spring clip in the centre of the bracket passed through a slot in the centre of the trim and secured the trim under pressure.Unless some garages stockpiled a quantity for use as dustbin lids!It seems odd to me that after over twenty years and millions of miles in service a wheel trim should come off in such a way as to injure someone and trigger a mass removal.Manchester was one of a number of undertakings that for a period specified rear wheel trims.Much to the annoyance of Head Office, certain depots removed them as soon as possible with the regular excuse of ‘lost in service’. The real reasons for removal was brake overheating, time in removing and replacing them when wheels had to be changed and, most importantly, the need to regularly check wheel nuts for tightness which later became a mandatory regular check and, as I understand it, it was at that time that the London wheel trims disappeared in short order. They all seemed to disappear from buses almost overnight. This was, of course long before the days of wheel nut indicators or hubometers, so the ‘falling off’ incident sounds eminently plausible.
