GENERAL SURVEY

IT is pleasant to be able to report that the use of diesel electric locomotives has resulted in still further economies. With the arrival of three more diesel electric locomotives during the year the Railway became almost fully dieselized, apart from handling extra traffic on special festival occasions with steam locomotives.

The results are reflected in the accounts where the Profit and Loss Statement shows a net profit of $2,051,554.20 which exceeded that for the previous year.

2. Gross income was $8,067,072.98, the highest since the financial year 1950/51 and $151,134.19 more than the previous year's figure, but net revenue was only $3,875,725.40 compared with $3,995,655.02 the year before. Unfortunately there was a higher operating expenditure of $4,191,347.58 or $271,063.81 more than the previous year. This was brought about for the most part by circumstances beyond the Depart- ment's control; firstly, by a considerable sum spent in restoring damage done by the torrential rainstorms and typhoon; secondly by an accident at Kowloon station and thirdly by pensions and gratuities arising out of staff redundancy due to diesel electric traction.

3.

         An important feature on this short line is the continuous increase in the local passenger traffic due to the rapid increase in population of the New Territories. Travel to and from China on the other hand is entirely dependent on the stringency or otherwise of regulations and restrictions. The non-local passenger traffic fell off during the year, due to the strict immigration regulations enforced by the Hong Kong Immigration office and the intense anti-smuggling activities by the Chinese Central People's Government.

4. The import of live pigs has traditionally been an important feature of incoming goods traffic. The total imported during the year was 252,443 head, the highest figure ever recorded and 88,904 more than during the previous year.

5. It will be noted that sale of old materials during the year amounted to $482,023.86. Of this amount $336,766.00 was derived from the clearance sales of old locomotives and spare parts, as a result of the change-over from steam to diesel electric traction.

1

6. A new timetable was introduced on 21st July, 1957, after full dieselization of the normal main line trains. This timetable has proved highly practical and economical.

7. Sir George Seel and Mr. R. W. Taylor visited the Railway on 13th June, 1957, to look into the stores supplied through the Crown Agents.

8. Mr. V. A. M. Robertson, a consulting engineer from Messrs. Sir William Halcrow and Partners in the United Kingdom, visited the Railway on 20th January, 1958, to report on the siting of a new railway terminal to replace the existing station at Tsim Sha Tsui. He left the Colony on 28th January, 1958.

9. All members of the staff worked well. In particular, the difficulties in recruitment of new railway clerks threw considerable extra work on the traffic staff and they are to be commended for the efficiency and willingness with which they carried out their duties without adequate time off in lieu of extra hours.

TRAFFIC

10. Traffic earnings for the financial year increased slightly over those of the previous year. Comparative figures are shown below:

1957/58 $7,170,658

1956/57 $7,110,867

Increase $59,791 or 0.84%

  11. Passenger Traffic. Passenger journeys, local, increased by 16.10%, while non-local decreased by 14.38%.

12. On 5th April, 1957, the Ching Ming Festival, 22 special trains were run in addition to the normal service to facilitate passengers visit- ing the cemeteries at Wo Hop Shek and Lo Wu. Passengers on that day alone were 65,579, surpassing the figure for the same day in the previous year by 4,469.

  13. The figures for passenger traffic, showing number of journeys and revenue, appear in Appendix VI.

  14. Goods Traffic. Although in June 1957, the United Kingdom Government sanctioned a partial lifting of the ban on trade with the Chinese Mainland, goods traffic as a whole decreased by 12.35% in tonnage and 10.56% in receipts compared with the previous year. The increasing use of lighters and junks towed by launches for conveying goods to and from Canton was the cause of the year's decrease in goods traffic.

17. The number of cold storage wagons sent over to the British Section by the Chinese Section totalled 264; these conveyed 1,861 tons of frozen prawns and fish, 1,156 tons of fresh fruits, 687 tons of fresh vegetables, 677 tons of frozen poultry, 385 tons of eggs, 94 tons of frozen meat and 78 tons of lard.

18. Although goods traffic dropped during the year, goods handling charges increased by $83,077 or 13.07% over those of the previous year, owing to higher rebates offered by the Contractors.

19. Details relating to goods traffic are shown in Appendix VII. 20. Operation. During the year, three diesel electric locomotives were delivered by Clyde Engineering Co. Pty. Ltd. of Sydney, Australia. Two arrived per s.s. 'Nellore' on 10th June, 1957 and the last per

3

s.s. 'Eastern' on 12th August, 1957. They were named after former Managers of the Railway, namely 'H. P. Winslow', 'R. Baker' and 'R. D. Walker'.

  23. On 22nd September, 1957, typhoon 'Gloria' hit the Colony. The afternoon train service was suspended until the following morning when the line had been thoroughly inspected.

  24. A pier was constructed near Ma Liu Shui station by the Christian Children's Fund for the Children's Garden at Wu Kwai Sha and was formally opened on 22nd March, 1958.

25. Fares and Rates. There was no revision of fares and rates. With effect from 17th April, 1957, the age limit for scholar ticket holders was waived.

  26. Accidents. There were no major railway accidents during the period under review.

At 16.00 hours on 21st May, 1957, four wash-outs of railway embankments caused by torrential rains were discovered between Mile: 51 and Mile 64. From then on only shuttle services were run until 06.00 hours on 25th May, 1957, when the track was restored and tested.

27. The Operating Account showed a surplus of $3,875,725.40 for the year-a figure only $119,929.62 less than the year before. Operating revenue reached the figure of $8,067,072.98 which was $151,134.19 more than the previous year's figure, while operating expenditure,

· $4,191,347.58, was $271,063.81 more than that for the previous year. The ratio of expenditure to revenue was 51.96 per cent as against 49.52 per cent last year, an increase of 2.44 per cent.

28. Passenger revenue totalled $4,966,202.92, an increase of $151,432.65 over the previous year, while revenue from goods traffic which totalled $1,553,276.50 was $198,295.05 below the previous year's figure.

29. The Profit and Loss Account showed a net profit of $2,051,554.20, slightly exceeding that for the previous year. The total ⚫ surplus carried forward in the Balance Sheet now amounts to : $3,473,605.28 after an amortization of the Special Expenditure by

$3,000,000.00 during the year.

30. Capital outlay on additions and betterments amounted to i $1,921,582.23. The main items were for line protection, renewals of track and a final payment of $1,487,010.53 for rolling stock. Against this, the book value of realizations under the heading of property abandoned totalled $1,491,643.29. This included $1,428,814.20 for old 1 rolling stock. The total book value of capital assets rose from

$49,029,606.97 to $49,459,545.91 an increase of $429,938.94.

MECHANICAL WORKSHOPS

       31. During the year, all mechanical equipment functioned well. Engine delay practically disappeared after the arrival of the fifth diesel electric locomotive on the 12th August, 1957 and all rolling stock gave very little trouble. Only one case of hot axle box occurred. There

5

were also only five cases of broken bolster suspension shackles and a few broken suspension springs on the pre-war carriages. In previous years there were on the average about three broken bolster suspension shackles per month and a good number of broken suspension springs. These improvements have been due to the alteration of the suspension shackles to a larger diameter and the conversion of the back plates of the suspension springs from the solid eye type to the loose washer type as stated in the 1952/53 annual report.

32. Locomotives. The road numbers of the three latest locomotives are 53, 54 and 55.

   These three locomotives are more powerful than the 51 and 52 previously built by the same company. The rated input to the generator of the first two is 1125 H.P. while the rated input of the last three is 1310 H.P. This increase in horse-power has been found to be beneficial because of the increase in passenger traffic. Trains of twelve to thirteen coaches were required to handle peak passenger traffic, while in previous years trains of eleven carriages were sufficient.

   Since the steam locomotives were rarely used, seven of the twelve Austerity locomotives were sold and broken up as scrap. Five still remain, but only three (Nos. 23, 26 and 29) are kept in working order 1 and two are retained for the provision of spares.

   Driving and maintenance crews have acquired a good knowledge of the new locomotives. They are now able to locate and rectify defects quickly a very valuable consideration in the keeping of the diesels in service.

   The availability factor of the locomotives for the year was 97.9%, a very high operating factor reflecting great credit on the maintenance teams. Most of the maintenance examinations were done in between runs or at night.

   Since diesel locomotives require less maintenance than steam locomotives the workshop staff was reduced according to requirements. At the beginning of the financial year, the locomotive section had a staff of 320 and at the end of the financial year there were only 261 or a reduction of 59 members. Nevertheless, the present size of work- shop staff was still able to handle a fair amount of work for other Government Departments.

   The cost of maintenance of the diesel electric went up from $0.159 to $0.232 per km. or an increase of 7.3 cents per km. due chiefly to the increase in labour costs. In the early part of the year, the locomotive repair shops had redundant labour on account of dieselization and the

6

cost of this labour was charged to the repair of the diesel electric locomotives which distorted the repair cost.

       33. Carriages and Wagons. Since wooden carriages tend to telescope in a collision which is almost certain to cause death, it has been decided to convert all existing wooden carriages to steel carriages as soon as is reasonably possible. During the year two wooden carriages No. 200 and No. 307 were thus converted, and further conversions were approved.

       Pre-war steel carriages No. 102 and No. 105 were given a heavy overhaul. The internal panelling of these two carriages was relined with laminated plastic surface. It is intended to reline the internal panel surface of all carriages with this type of surface, since it is durable, easy to clean and requires no painting. Painted internal surfaces are very hard to keep clean, a carriage requiring repainting about every two years. All new carriages are internally lined with this type of material and are standing up well.

                              ང、་ Carriage No. 313 was repainted and the floor surface was renewed with porcelain tiles.

       The following carriages were given a general inspection, minor repairs and repainting:

TP-301

TP-332

TP-303 TP-333

TP-321 TP-334

TP-323

SP-202

TP-324

SP-203

       Army ration wagons Nos. 45410, 45411, 45412 and 45413 were repainted.

The insides of the following steel wagons were repainted to avoid ⚫ corrosion:

45468 45464

45454 45410

45487 45493

45508

45495

       34. Work Done for Other Government Departments: A great amount of work was done for other departments of Government:

(a) Manufacture of traffic bollards, loading ram slide runners, pinions and pulleys; the design and manufacture of cast iron bends and spacer pieces; the machining and remetalling of bearings; and the repair of plating on armoured cars for the Police Department.

(b) Repair of 129 wheel barrows and 5 hand carts for the Resettle-

ment Department.

(c) Manufacture of 176 manhole covers and various cast iron, aluminium, brass and bronze castings for the Stores Department.

7

(d) Manufacture of pump shafts, adaptors, couplings and protective

screens for the Fire Brigade.

(e) Repair of sprayers for the Malaria Bureau.

(f) Repair of equipment for the Kowloon and Lai Chi Kok Hospitals. (g) Repair of wheel-barrows for the Urban Services Department. 35. Statistics. The average diesel fuel consumption for the year under review was 2.82 kgs. per km. as against 2.68 kgs. per km. of the previous year. The slight increase in consumption was due to the increased loads on trains, as mentioned previously.

Coal consumption was 14.82 kgs. per train km. and furnace oil consumption was 11.91 kgs. per train km. as against 18.25 and 11.45 of the previous year. Coal consumption showed an improvement while furnace oil consumption showed a deterioration. Since the steam locomotives were mostly used for goods traffic and shunting, these figures cannot be used as indices for the operating efficiency of the steam locomotives.

Statistical statements relating to analysis of trains and locomotives kilometrage; coal and fuel oil running expenses; and repairs to locomo tives, carriages and wagons will be found at the end of this report as appendices X, XI, XII, XIII and XV.

WAY AND STRUCTURES

36. Maintenance. Way and Structures were maintained in good order during the year.

37. Track. The main line track was maintained to a good standard. Four lengths of cracked rail due to defective material were replaced. Two sets of worn switch tongues and one worn crossing were renewed. All the fishplates in the main line were carefully inspected and greased. The renewal of worn switch points at Kowloon station and the service line between Kowloon and Hung Hom was completed. The work done was as follows:

95 lb. rails

95 lb. switches

95 lb. crossings

Ordinary hardwood sleepers Crossing sleepers

196 lengths

1,231

363

8 sets 7 sets

Stone ballast

247 tons

All 85 lb. section rails in the track on the border bridge at Lo Wu were renewed with 95 lb. section rails.

8

       Badly worn rails on the section of the Whampoa Dock siding between the Dock and Gillies Avenue were replaced by good old 85 lb. section rails and the sleepers replaced by cement concrete footing preparatory to surfacing of Baker Street by the Public Works Department.

       The trolley shed siding in Kowloon station yard was re-aligned and the worn rails were replaced with good old 85 lb. section rails.

       To reduce excessive wear on the sharp curves in the main line, 6 additional rail flange lubricators were installed at Miles 11, 6, 61, 113, 151 and 151.

       A total of 360 anchors was added to the track. Rail creep was kept completely under control. No creep of more than one inch was recorded.

38. Repair to Typhoon and Rainstorm Damages. As a result of continuous exceptionally heavy rains in the early part of May, four ↑ washouts occurred at the embankments between Mile 51 and Mile 61 on 21st May, 1957. Through traffic at reduced speed was resumed at 06.00 hours on 25th May, 1957 after re-aligning the track and filling the washouts with 1,400 tons of spalls, earth and ashes. Improvement was made to drainage along these embankments including the construction of an additional 5'x5' cement concrete culvert and some 900 ft. of open channel.

       The passing of typhoon 'Gloria' in September also caused damage to the buildings and fence at Hung Hom Workshop, the seawall between Mile 9 and Mile 134, the invert and stone pitching of bridge No. 17 and the embankments at Lo Wu. Repairs were completed during the

year.

       39. Signalling. The installation of new signalling at Ma Liu Shui station was completed in July.

       One five-doll signal gantry and one two-doll signal bracket damaged during an accident on 15th December, 1956, were restored.

       All signal bridges, posts, brackets, arms, point indicators and fouling points in all stations were overhauled and painted.

       40. Tunnels. All tunnels were inspected during the year and main- tained in as good order as funds permitted. A length of 230 linear yards of No. 2 tunnel (Beacon Hill) was thoroughly cleansed with high pressure jets consisting of a mixture of detergent and water and sprayed with 1" cement mortar by the 'AEROCEM' process to protect the brick lining and to combat moisture.

       41. Bridges. Major repairs were done to bridge No. 31 near Mile 18 and bridge No. 38 at Lo Wu station. Bridges Nos. 27, 28, 29, 30, 32,

9

33 and the bridges at Wo Hop Shek station were overhauled and painted.

   Worn sleepers on bridges Nos. 10, 24, 31, 34, 35, 36, 37 and 38 were renewed.

   42. Road Level Crossings. The road level crossings at Mile 7, Mile 9 and Mile 13 were overhauled.

   43. Approach Road and Station Yard. The approach road at Wo Hop Shek station and a section of the approach road and yard at Blackheads were resurfaced.

   A temporary level crossing with gates was constructed on 27th February, 1958, at Mile 8 near Fo Tan village, Sha Tin, for the passage of motor lorries to facilitate the erection of a new dyeing factory. The crossing was manned at the expense of the factory.

   At Lo Wu station a new reinforced concrete covered passage way leading from the Customs building to the station building was erected for the protection of passengers against sun and rain. The north-eastern portion of the station yard was tidied up. Turfing and the planting of shrubs and trees were carried out by the Agricultural Department.

   The fencing at Kowloon station yard along Salisbury Road was completely overhauled, painted and partly re-aligned.

   44. Station Buildings. The station buildings at Lo Wu and the goods sheds at Kowloon were overhauled and painted.

45. Staff Quarters. Major repairs were done to the kitchens of the workshop staff quarters at Hung Hom. The ganghut and signal foreman's quarters at Blackheads, engine driver's quarters at Hung Hom, old staff quarters at Sha Tin, the station master's quarters at Tai Po Market and the traffic quarters at Tai Po and Lo Wu were overhauled and painted. General repairs and improvements were made in the Railway Police Quarters inside Hung Hom Workshop.

46. Workshop. The Mechanical Engineer's office was overhauled and painted. Improvements on the advice of the Chief Officer, Fire Brigade, were made to the inflammable liquid store inside Hung Hom Workshop by altering the existing windows and doors and by the addition of hollow tiles on the roof for better heat insulation.

Two water towers were completely repainted.

47. New Work. A new reinforced concrete Immigration Office build- ing was erected at Lo Wu station and handed over to the Police in July.

10

         A new washroom was built on the roof of the concourse at Kowloon station.

       48. Railway Land. The following areas of Railway land were leased for various purposes:

   52. Coal. Although the total amount of coal purchased during the year was 605 tons, an increase of 155 tons on the previous year, the actual consumption was only 350.65 tons. A reserve of suitable coal had to be obtained in the event of delay in delivery of the new diesel locomotives. The average price of coal was $132.37 per ton delivered to bunkers.

   53. Light Fuel Diesel Oil. The price of diesel oil fell slightly in the course of the year. At the commencement of the year, it was $267.00 per ton delivered to Railway tanks, and after several reductions in price it remained at $256.00 per ton for the last seven months.

   With the arrival of three new diesel locomotives, the consumption of diesel oil went up considerably, and the quantity purchased during the year was 1,603.71 tons compared with 765.06 tons for the previous year, an increase of 838.65 tons.

54. Furnace Oil. As in the case of diesel oil, the price of furnace oil also fell slightly from $177.00 to $158.00 per ton. The total quantity of furnace oil purchased was 270.099 tons, a decrease of 481.445 tons on the previous year.

The decrease in consumption of coal and furnace oil is shown in Appendices XI and XII.

   55. Local Purchase and Government Stores. There was a decrease of $39,913.11 from last year's direct local purchases from firms, but an increase of $30,660.62 in purchases through Government Stores.

56. Crown Agents. Some fifty indents were forwarded to Crown Agents through Government Stores for materials, at an estimated cost of £19,300. Five of the above indents were for materials of United States origin, the cost of which was US$15,000.

Several indents were sent direct to Australia for diesel electric locomotive spare parts at a total cost of £A. 6,000.

In consequence of the change-over from steam to diesel electric traction, spare parts for steam locomotives costing over $100,000 in stock were sold at a loss of approximately $74,000.

STAFF

   57. The establishment of the Railway as at 31st March, 1958 was as follows:

116 Pensionable Officers

429 Non-pensionable Officers

63 Daily Rated Staff

There was a reduction of 52 from the previous year.

       The Mechanical Engineer's section was reduced by 59 while there was an increase in the Way and Works section of 7.

Changes in executive staff during the year were as follows:

       Mr. A. A. Whitney, Senior Accountant, was appointed to act as Chief Accountant, Public Works Department, on 20th May, 1957.

       Mr. Tso Po Shee, Executive Officer Class I, was appointed Acting Senior Accountant to relieve Mr. Whitney.

       Mr. K. Allen, Executive Officer Class I, was appointed Acting Senior Accountant on 6th July, 1957 to relieve Mr. Tso.

        The General Manager, Mr. I. B. Trevor, proceeded on vacation leave on 30th July, 1957 and resumed duty on his return to the Colony on 26th December, 1957. During Mr. Trevor's absence the duties of General Manager were carried out by Mr. LAM PO Hon, Engineer, Way and Works.

       A total of 41 officers retired during the year after serving the Railway for periods ranging from 3 to 40 years.

Transfer of certain categories of daily rated staff to monthly rates of pay as they became eligible continued, a total of 12 such transfers : taking place.

The staff English language evening classes, which were first held in ! 1954 to provide the junior staff with an opportunity to improve their ! knowledge of English, continued to function satisfactorily throughout | 1957/58. It was found necessary to hold an intermediate class only as from September when the 1957/58 session commenced. There was i a total enrolment of 12.

STAFF WELFARE

       58. The earned leave granted to officers during the year amounted to:

2,067 days vacation leave 6,238 days casual leave

for a total staff of 608.

        Total sick leave for the year for all kinds of sickness on full and half pay amounted to 2,370 days and a further 2611⁄2 days no-pay leave was also approved. Maternity leave totalling 109 days was also granted.

       The Railway Club had repaid up to 31st March, 1958, a total of $24,872.50 to Government on the loan of $43,000. Owing to the slightly improved financial situation, the Club has been able to embark on more social and welfare activities during the year.

13

   59. Picnic. A picnic to Castle Peak organized by the Club was held on 20th October, 1957. On the way to Castle Peak, a visit was also paid to Tai Lam Chung Reservoir by all who joined the picnic.

The picnickers were conveyed in seven lorries hired from the Electrical and Mechanical section of the Public Works Department.

   The picnic was a complete success and enjoyed very much by some 210 members. Light refreshments were provided and lunch was served at Castle Peak Temple.

The Club contributed from its funds a sum of $580.65 to meet in part the expenses of this outing.

   60. Film Shows. Film shows were run at the expense of the Club once a week throughout the year for members and their families. These shows were always well attended.

   61. Sport. During the year the Club entered a team in each of the miniature football competitions organized by the Hong Kong Chinese Civil Servants Association and the Kowloon Miniature Football Association.

   Commencing from 25th November, 1957, shadow boxing classes were run regularly three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the Club between 5.30 p.m. and 7.00 p.m. under the guidance of a well-known instructor. A large number of members attended these classes.

62. Competition. Competitions in table-tennis and Chinese chess were organized and enthusiastically supported by members of the Club. 63. Education. The Railway Club School has, during the year, extended its classes to Primary 6. A complete primary course has therefore been provided for the students as from 2nd September, 1957. This expansion added 40 places to the seating accommodation, making a total enrolment of 280 which is almost double the number enrolled when the school was first established in 1954.

Although the school's Primary 6 Class is only newly formed, the Education Department has allotted it seats for 16 candidates at the forthcoming Joint Primary 6 Examination-the largest number allotted to any Government-subsidized school. In addition to normal class teaching, extra lessons have been given regularly to backward students. An innovation provided in the school is a quiet room for self-study for those students who lack suitable accommodation at home.

   64. Canteen Facilities. The Club's canteen continued to operate throughout the year. A new caterer, commencing from 11th December,

14

!

1957, was very successful in supplying the type of meals most suitable to members. More than 100 inexpensive meals were sold daily. On numerous occasions this caterer capably handled the catering for large parties (as many as 24 tables) when required by members of the Club. It is most encouraging to report that members of the Club now take full advantage of the canteen facilities available.

        65. Other Social Activities. A children's party for the children of Club members and the students of the Railway Club School was held on 8th February, 1958. Some 600 children attended this party and a very entertaining programme was put on by the students. Eatables, soft drinks and toys were distributed to the children during a break in the performance.
