HONG KONG JUNE 2019 - Frank Bagshaw

Car 1045 running as a single unit. It has been commented that running like this they look like “toy trains”


Frank took the MTR to Tuen Mun and rode some of the Light Rail routes. Here is 1083 at one of several terminii

Some of these run as single cars - see first photo, or as a double unit as in this photo.
Tram 45 slowly makes its way along the single track loop at North Point. Today there was a lot of ringing of the bell, no wonder they are referred to as the “ding ding trams”

Here is tram 120 still carrying the older bodywork and livery awaiting passengers at Happy Valley terminus before returning to Whitty Street depot.
