GENERAL SURVEY

THE year closed with a surplus of operating revenue over expenditure of $4,151,794.00, which is the highest since the year ending 31st March, 1951. The Profit and Loss Account also shows the highest profit for the same period at $2,249,443.11. Operating expenditure at $3,606,795.07 is the lowest since the year ending 31st March, 1950. These good results have not been accomplished without vigilance over expenditure by all sections of the Department. Economies have been made both in staff and running expenses.

2. Local passenger traffic continued to show an upward trend, with an increase over the previous year of 6.73% in the number of journeys. Non-local passenger traffic, however, declined markedly showing a decrease of 36.25% in the number of journeys and $604,218.05 in receipts. Travel to and from China is dependent on the immigration regulations enforced by the Hong Kong Immigration Office and restric- tions on travel by the Chinese Government: it therefore fluctuates from time to time.

        3. The number of passengers carried on Ching Ming Festival Day, 5th April, 1958, in all 68,526 persons, was a record. This large number was only handled with great inconvenience and discomfort to the passengers due to the present shortage of rolling stock, which is inadequate for handling festival day crowds. In addition a considerable number of passengers had to be turned away. It is anticipated that this festival traffic will continue to rise in future years and the continuous heavy passenger traffic must force the addition of new rolling stock.

4. In the case of goods traffic, export tonnage remained approxi- mately the same as for the previous year; but the import tonnage increased by 20.21% with an increase of 7.63% in receipts.

        5. A feature of traffic by rail has long been the importation of pigs and this year the number was 264,728 head, a record figure and 12,285 head more than last year. In the month of February 1958 this traffic dropped considerably due to limited exports of pigs from China; but normal traffic was resumed in March 1958.

6. The five diesel electric locomotives were fully employed in operating practically all traffic except when withdrawal for routine

1

inspection or minor failure necessitated relief by steam engines. Steam locomotives were rarely used except for this purpose, and for handling extra traffic during special festival periods.

The use of diesel electric locomotives has resulted in still further economies, a saving of a further $117,000 in locomotive running ex- penses being effected during the year.

TRAFFIC

   7. Traffic earnings for the year under review showed a slight decrease of 7.14% from those of the previous year. Comparative figures are shown below:

1958/59 $6,658,860

1957/58 $7,170,658

Decrease $511,798 or 7.14%

8. Passenger Traffic. Local passenger journeys increased by 6.73% while non-local journeys showed the considerable drop of 36.25%.

   9. On Ching Ming Festival day, 5th April, 1958, thirty two special trains were run to cope with the traffic demand to carry visitors to and from the cemeteries at Wo Hop Shek and Sandy Ridge.

10. The figures for passenger traffic, showing number of journeys and revenue, appear in Appendices VI and VII.

   11. Goods Traffic. Total goods traffic in the year bettered that of the previous year by 21.59% in tonnage and 2.40% in receipts. Receipts on handling charges were also increased by $27,603 or 3.84%.

19. To meet the increasing passenger traffic demand at Ma Liu Shui Station it was arranged that with effect from 29th May, 1958 Up Train No. 16 would make a scheduled stop there daily. A total of 9 Up and 8 Down Trains now make scheduled stops daily at this station which caters mostly for the staff and students of Chung Chi College.

20. On 4th September, 1958, H.E. the Governor paid a visit to the Railway and travelled to Tai Po Station on a special train.

21. At the request and expense of a firm building a new dyeing and finishing factory at Fo Tan, north of Sha Tin, a temporary level crossing was installed and manned near Mile 8 post. This was to facilitate delivery of building materials and heavy factory equipment to the site.

22. Fares and Rates. There was no revision of passenger fares during the year, but goods classifications were revised with effect from 1st December, 1958, to meet the requirements of the present goods traffic demand.

   23. On 3rd October, 1958 special cheap rates were introduced for the conveyance of cattle. After the introduction of the new rates, a portion of this traffic the majority of which since December 1955 had been conveyed by road from Man Kam To to Kowloon has returned to the railway.

MECHANICAL WORKSHOPS

     During the year under review all mechanical equipment and plant was maintained in an efficient state. There were only five cases of train delay due to engine failure and all rolling stock gave practically no trouble.

   32. Locomotives. The steam locomotives were very rarely used during the year and practically all traffic was run by the five diesel electric locomotives which functioned with high efficiency and economy. The availability factor of these locomotives for the year was 97.53% and the cost of maintenance dropped down from $0.232 to $0.193 per km. or a decrease of 16.81%. The workshop staff was further reduced from 261 to 246 as the diesel electric locomotives require less maintenance than steam engines.

33. During the year forty seven 5,000-mile inspections, thirteen 10,000-mile inspections and eight 30,000-mile inspections were per- formed on the diesel electric locomotives.

34. Carriages and Wagons. (a) During the year the programme for conversion of wooden bodied carriages to steel was continued. A total of five wooden bodied carriages Nos. 203, 301. 302, 309 and 314 were rebuilt. Although the primary reason for conversion from wooden to steel bodies is the passenger safety factor in the event of accidents, economies are being effected due to the less frequent need for major repairs to the converted carriages.

(b) Carriage No. 312 was given a heavy overhaul. The internal panelling of this carriage was relined with a laminated plastic surface and the floor was renewed with porcelain tiles.

(c) Carriages Nos. 322, 329 and 330 were given a general inspection, minor repairs and repainting.

(d) Flat wagons Nos. 45100 to 45109 and Covered wagons Nos. 45459 and 45491 were repainted.

35. Effect of Rail Lubricators on Tyres of Rolling Stock. Rail lubricators were installed on the sharp curves of the main line track to reduce excessive rail wear caused by diesel electric locomotives. As a result of these installations, the wear on tyres of the locomotives has also been very much reduced. It was found that the tyres of the diesel electric locomotives which, prior to installation of the lubricators had to be turned after running 90,000 miles, were still in good running condition at 120,000 miles and it is estimated that they will run for

6

another 40,000 miles before turning is required. The carriage and wagon wheel tyres have benefitted similarly.

36. Work Done for Other Government Departments. Despite reduc- tions in staff, it was still found possible to undertake a fair amount of work for other Government departments; including the following items: (a) Manufacture of 260 traffic bollards, 71 sets of protective screens and 13 canopies for Land Rovers, 4 sets of sluice gates, 3 500-gallon hot water cylinders and 50 spalling hammers for the Public Works and other departments.

(b) Manufacture of 12 brass first-aid tanks for the Fire Brigade. (c) Repair of equipment for Medical and Resettlement Departments. 37. Statistics. (a) The average consumption of diesel fuel for the year under review was 2.86 kgs. per km. which is approximately the same as for the previous year.

(b) Coal consumption was 25.94 kgs. per train km, and furnace oil consumption was 19.38 kgs. per train km. Since the mileage operated by the steam locomotives was very small these figures cannot be used as indices for the operating efficiency of the steam locomotives.

(c) Statistical statements relating to analysis of train and locomotive kilometrage; coal and fuel oil running expenses; consumption of lubricants; and costs of repairs to locomotives, carriages and wagons will be found at appendices X to XV while classifications of rolling stock are at appendices XVI to XX.

WAY AND STRUCTURES

38. Maintenance. Way and structures were maintained in good order during the year.

39. Track. (a) The main line track was maintained to a good standard. One worn switch tongue, one worn crossing and three lengths of worn closure rails were renewed. All the fish plates in the main line were carefully inspected and greased.

(b) The track inside Beacon Hill Tunnel was partially renewed. The work included the renewal of 190 lengths 95 lb. section rails, 36 ft. long, and 10,075 dogspikes, and the addition of 80 cu. yards of new stone ballast.

(c) Four worn 85 lb. rails and one worn 85 lb. crossing inside the Locomotive Yard were replaced with serviceable old ones. All the worn 85 lb. rails inside the Engine Shed in the Workshop were renewed.

7

   (d) Due to excessive wear on the rail head of the outer rails on the curves at Ma Liu Shui Station, Mile 103, Mile 11 and Mile 112, all the outer rails of these curves were turned so that the worn edges face outwards. Altogether 195 lengths were turned.

   (e) To reduce excessive rail wear on sharp curves another two rail and wheel flange lubricators were installed, one at Mile 94 and the other at Mile 11, in addition to the eight already functioning on the main line with very good results.

(f) Some 3,730 sleepers were renewed during the year and rail creep was kept completely under control.

   40. Signalling. All signal arms, point indicators and fouling points of all stations were painted.

   41. Kilometre and Gradient Posts. The kilometre and gradient posts along the whole of the main line were repaired and painted.

   42. Tunnels. All tunnels were inspected and maintained in as good order as funds permitted during the year. A length of 978 linear yards. of Beacon Hill Tunnel was thoroughly cleansed with high pressure jets of a mixture of detergent and water and sprayed with inch cement mortar by the 'Aerocem' process to protect the brick lining and to combat moisture.

   43. Bridges. Major repairs were done to Bridge No. 9 at Mile 51 including the construction of an additional gantry. Minor repairs were done to Bridges Nos. 34, 35, 36 and 37. All these bridges were repaint- ed with bituminous paint. Rotten sleepers on Bridges Nos. 9, 20, 24, 27, 28, 29, 34, 35 and 37 were renewed.

   44. Road Level Crossings. (a) The road level crossings at Mile 7, Mile 13 and Sheung Shui were overhauled.

   (b) Major repairs were done on Holt's Wharf Road Level Crossing including the renewal of all the wood-work and wire netting in the crossing gates.

(c) All the rotten timber decking of the Police Level Crossing at Fan Ling Station was renewed.

   (d) The Military Tank Level Crossing at Mile 8 and the Military Road Level Crossing at Mile 16 were abolished as they were no longer required by the Military Authorities.

45. Seawalls. Loose stone pitchings in the seawalls between Mile 9 and Mile 122 were repointed with cement mortar. Total area re- pointed amounted to 1,100 sq. yards.

8

        46. Station Buildings. Major overhauls were done to the station buildings at Fan Ling, Wo Hop Shek and Kowloon including improve- ments and alterations.

47. Stores Buildings. Stores buildings and offices at Hung Hom and Blackheads were completely overhauled and repainted.

        48. Staff Quarters. Major repairs were done to the senior staff quarters at Gascoigne Road, the permanent-way sub-inspector's quarters at Yau Ma Tei Station, the headman's and the platelayers' quarters at Sha Tin and six of the Nissen hut quarters adjacent to the Hung Hom Workshops.

        49. New Work and Improvements. (a) The platforms at the follow- ing stations were lengthened to meet the requirements of the present length of passenger trains:

Yau Ma Tei Station Loop Line lengthened by 150 ft. Sha Tin Station Main Line Sha Tin Station Loop Line

Ma Liu Shui Station Main Line Tai Po Station Main Line

Tai Po Station Loop Line Tai Po Market Station Main Line Tai Po Market Station Loop Line Fan Ling Station Main Line Fan Ling Station Loop Line Sheung Shui Station Main Line

607

There was a reduction of one from the previous year.

63. Changes in executive staff during the year were as follows:

Mr. I. B. Trevor, C.B.E., M.C., who was appointed as General Manager on 1st May, 1946 proceeded on vacation leave on 3rd October, 1958 prior to his retirement. Mr. Trevor joined the Rail- way on 5th December, 1924 as a Traffic Assistant and had more than thirty four years good service to his credit.

11

 Mr. LAM PO Hon, Engineer, Way and Works, was appointed Acting General Manager to relieve Mr. Trevor on 3rd October, 1958.

 Mr. A. A. Whitney, Senior Executive Officer Class II was re- appointed Senior Accountant on 19th November, 1958 to relieve Mr. K. Allen transferred to the Treasury.

 Mr. Ma Tsok Leung was appointed to the post of Traffic Assist- ant on 1st November, 1958. Mr. Ma left the Colony for the United Kingdom by air on 23rd March, 1959 to undertake courses of instruction with the Eastern Region of British Railways for approximately eighteen months.

   64. A total of fifteen officers retired during the year, after serving the Railway for periods ranging from six to forty years.

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

STAFF WELFARE

66. The earned leave granted to officers during the year for a total staff of 607 amounted to:

2,603 days vacation leave

6,010 days casual leave

Total sick leave for the year for all kinds of sickness on full and half pay amounted to 1,122 days and a further 105 day no-pay leave was also approved. Maternity leave totalling 124 days was also granted.

67. The Railway Club, run purely on subscriptions from Railway staff, continued to flourish. Up to 31st March, 1959 the Club had repaid a total of $26,679.50 to Government on the loan of $43,000.00.

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

69. Sports. During the year the Club entered a team in the minia- ture football competition organized by the Hong Kong Chinese Civil Servants Association and succeeded in qualifying for the final round of the tournament.

70. Education. The Railway Club School continues to flourish under a hard working team of the school management and teaching staff. Total enrolment for the year was 280, but applications for admis-

12

sion far exceeded the seating accommodation available. There were 356 applicants, of whom only thirty two were admitted.

71. For the first time, students of the School sat for the Joint Primary 6 Examination in 1958. All the sixteen candidates from the School the largest number allotted to any Government subsidized school-passed every subject for which they had entered and five of them were awarded places in Government Schools.

72. In addition to normal class teaching and organized extra- curricular activities, free tuition classes were held after school hours in the afternoon or evening for backward students. These classes were run voluntarily by teachers who willingly sacrificed their leisure for the benefit of the students.

73. Picnic. A picnic to Sha Tin by train organized by the Club was held on 10th November, 1958. Some 132 members enjoyed the picnic. Light refreshments were provided and lunch was served at the Sai Lam Monastery. The Club contributed from its funds a sum of $305.30 to meet part of the expenses.

74. Canteen Facilities. The Club's canteen continues to provide cheap meals for the lower paid staff and to handle the catering of large parties for Club members.

        75. Other Social Activities. A party organized by the Club for the children of Club members and the students of the Railway Club School was held on 1st February, 1959. Some 685 children attended this party. A very entertaining programme of short plays and songs was provided by students of the Railway Club School and well-known local singers. Food, soft drinks and toys were distributed to the children during a break in the performance.
