GENERAL SURVEY

THE year closed with a surplus of operating revenue over expenditure of $4,542,016.45 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 $2,668,861.92.

2. Gross income was $8,638,167.15 the highest since the financial year 1950/51. Unfortunately there was a higher operating expenditure of $4,096,150.70 or $489,355.63 more than the previous year. This was brought about by circumstances beyond the control of the Department; firstly by the increase in salaries, pensions and gratuities arising out of the 1959 Salaries Revision and secondly by a considerable sum spent in restoring damage done by the torrential rainstorms.

3. Local passenger traffic continued to show an upward trend with an increase over the previous year of 14.15% in the number of journeys. This increase was mainly due to the rapid increase in popula- tion of the New Territories. The movement of passengers to and from China varied considerably during the year: in all 885,953 passengers were carried, an increase of 31.56% over the previous year.

       4. The number of passengers carried on Ching Ming Festival Day, 5th April, 1959, 85,560 persons was once again a record. This figure would have been even higher if more rolling stock had been available.

       5. In the case of goods traffic, both the export tonnage and import tonnage increased compared with the previous year, the export tonnage by 24.21% and the import tonnage by 20.88%.

       6. The import of live pigs has traditionally been an important feature of incoming goods traffic. The total imported during the year was 256,307 head which was 8,421 less than the previous year.

       7. The Department suffered a loss of $171,015.13 as a result of the torrential rainstorms in June 1959. Extensive damage was done to the cuttings and embankments at various sections of the main line. The worst landslip occurred at the high cutting opposite the Railway Work- shops at Hung Hom where several hundred tons of boulders and earth buried the railway track which had to be temporarily re-aligned before traffic could he resumed.

8. His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government, Mr. C. B. BURGESS, C.M.G., O.B.E., visited the Railway on 15th October, 1959 and travelled to Ma Liu Shui Station on a special train.

9. Mr. J. I. SCOTT and Mr. K. G. GOODCHILD of the Crown Agents for Oversea Governments and Administrations visited the Railway Workshops and Stores on 3rd December, 1959.

10. Sir Stephen LUKE, K.C.M.G., Senior Crown Agent, visited the Railway on 25th March, 1960 to look into the stores supplied through the Crown Agents.

TRAFFIC

11. Traffic earnings for the year under review amounted to $7,441,575 showing an increase of 11.75% over that of the previous year. Comparative figures are shown below:

$782,715 or 11.75%

12. Passenger Traffic. Passenger journeys, both local and non-local, have increased, the local by 14.15% and non-local by 31.56%.

13. To facilitate passengers visiting the cemeteries at Wo Hop Shek and Sandy Ridge, 32 special trains in addition to the normal service, were run on Ching Ming Festival Day, 5th April, 1959, and 25 on Chung Yeung Festival Day, 10th October, 1959. On these two days. 85,560 and 28,466 passengers respectively were carried.

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

15. Goods Traffic. Total goods traffic in the year increased by 17.86% in tonnage compared with the previous year. There was only a small increase of 0.04% in receipts due to the re-classification of certain kinds of goods in December 1958. Receipts on handling charges were also increased very slightly by 0.57%.

32. The accounts for the year, together with a summary of financial results for the past three years, are at Appendices I to V.

MECHANICAL WORKSHOPS

33. Locomotives. The five diesel electric locomotives were fully employed in operating practically all traffic except when withdrawal for routine inspection or failure necessitated relief by steam engines. Steam locomotives were rarely used except for this purpose, and for handling extra traffic for holidays and festivals.

34. All locomotives ran very well with the exception of locomotive No. 52 which had a broken cylinder due to the seizure of the piston on its liner. This locomotive was out of service for nearly two months.

35. During the year twenty six 5,000 mile inspections, fourteen 10,000 mile inspections and ten 30,000 mile inspections were performed on the diesel electric locomotives. The wheels of locomotive No. 51 were changed and the tyres on the wheels of locomotives Nos. 53, 54 and 55 were turned.

36. The availability factor of the diesel electric locomotives for the year was 91.12% which is 6.41% lower than the previous year. This drop was affected by the failure of locomotive No. 52.

5

37.

The cost of maintenance of the diesel electric locomotives rose from $0.193 to $0.344 per km. The increase was due to the increasing age of the locomotives. Since the diesel locomotives were put in service in 1955, none of them had a wheel changed until this year when the wheels of locomotive No. 51 were changed. The changing of wheels is an expensive item and is one of the factors causing the increase in the maintenance cost.

   38. Carriages and Wagons. In addition to routine maintenance, the following items were the more important work done on carriages and wagons:

(a) During the year, the programme for conversion of wooden bodied carriages to steel was continued. A total of six wooden bodied carriages Nos. 209, 300, 308, 315, 319 and 320 were rebuilt. The conversion from wooden to steel bodies is for both passenger safety and economies in maintenance.

(b) Carriage No. 201 was given a major overhaul. The internal panellings of this carriage and carriage No. 100 were relined with a laminated plastic surface.

(c) Major repairs were done to low-side wagons Nos. 45202 and 45206 including repainting.

(d) The following wagons were given a general inspection, minor repair and repainting:

45107

45108 45202 & 45206

39. Work Done for Other Government Departments. A great amount of work was done for other departments of Government. The most important items were the manufacture of 3 hot water cylinders, 8 traffic pagodas, 24 loader plates for refuse collectors and 54 sets of traffic bollards.

40. Statistics. (a) The average consumption of diesel fuel for the year under review was 2.94 kgs. per engine km. as against 2.86 kgs. per engine km. for the previous year. The increase in consumption was due to the increased loads on trains and the increasing age of the diesel electric locomotives.

  (b) Coal consumption was 11.76 kgs. per train km. and furnace oil consumption was 9.08 kgs. per train km. Since the mileage operated by the steam locomotives was comparatively small, these figures cannot be used as indices for the operating efficiency of the steam locomotives.

6

       (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

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

       42. Track. (a) The main line track was maintained to a good standard. All the fishplates in the main line were carefully inspected and greased.

       (b) A portion of the track inside Beacon Hill Tunnel, which was badly worn, was renewed. The work involved the renewal of 100 lengths 95 lb. section rails, 36 ft. long.

       (c) The loop line at Ma Liu Shui Station, which was laid with old 85 lb. rails, was completely replaced with new 95 lb. section rails. Total length of track relaid was 1,488 ft. with the addition of 360 rail anchors to prevent rail creep.

       (d) Spot renewals included the renewal of five 95 lb. worn rails, 36 ft. long, three 1 in 8 95 lb. crossings, two 1 in 10 95 lb. crossings and two 18 ft. 95 lb. switch tongues.

(e) Due to excessive wear on the rail head of the outer rails on the curves at Miles 24, 51, 52, 82, 91, 101, 102, 143 and 151, all the outer rails of these curves were turned so that the worn edges face outwards. Altogether 261 lengths of rails were turned.

       (f) Some 3,133 sleepers were renewed during the year and rail creep was kept completely under control.

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

       44. Tunnels. All tunnels were inspected and maintained in as good order as funds permitted during the year. A length of 118 linear yards of No. 5 Tunnel was thoroughly cleansed with high pressure jets of a mixture of detergent and water and sprayed with 1⁄2 inch cement mortar by the 'Aerocem' process to protect the brick lining and to combat moisture.

       45. Bridges and Culverts. Major repairs were done to bridge No. 24 at the north of Tai Po Market Station including the construction of an

7

6

additional gantry. Minor repairs were done to bridges Nos. 1, 2, 5, and 7. All these bridges were repainted with bituminous paint. Rotten sleepers on bridges Nos. 20, 24 and 36 were renewed. The sluice gate in the culvert at Ma Liu Shui Station was overhauled.

46. Road Level Crossings. The road level crossings near Holt's Wharf and at Miles 7, 9, 131, 18, 19 were overhauled. All the crossing gates in the New Territories were repainted.

47. Seawalls. Loose stone pitchings in the seawalls between Mile 103 and Mile 12 were repointed with cement mortar. The total area repointed amounted to 550 sq. yds.

48. Station Buildings. (a) All the buildings within the railway boundary were inspected periodically for white ants by white ant exterminating contractors.

(b) Major overhauls were done to the station buildings at Yau Ma Tei, Sha Tin, Ma Liu Shui and Tai Po.

(c) The roof of the Head Office building at Kowloon was laid with asphalt roofing felt and bitumen to prevent leakage during heavy rains.

49. Staff Quarters. Major repairs were done to the ganghut and headmen's quarters at Mile 10, the traffic quarters at Yau Ma Tei and Sha Tin Stations, and the workshop foremen's quarters at Hung Hom. The portions of the 'B' quarters at Railway Terrace, Hung Hom, which were in a bad condition were redecorated.

50. Extensive damage was done to the cuttings and embankments at various sections of the main line by the heavy rainstorm in June and the workshop compound at Hung Hom was flooded. Temporary repairs were effected as quickly as possible even when the rainstorm was raging. Permanent repairs and protective works began immediately after the rainstorm including the construction of retaining walls in the cuttings at Mile 11, Mile 13, Mile 32, Mile 51 and Tai Po Market; protective toe walls in the embankments at Mile 2, Mile 53 and Mile 6; replaster- ing of the slope and repairs to storm water channels in the cuttings at Mile 11 and Mile 153; improvements to drainage in the workshop compound, and at Sha Tin and Mile 121; the clearing of inverts of bridge No. 13 and bridge No. 29 and the turntable pit and nullah in the workshop compound.

51. New Work and Improvements. (a) To provide better catering facilities at Lo Wu Station, a new restaurant was constructed with a seating capacity of 53. It is a one-storeyed reinforced cement concrete

8

building fitted with a bar and has frequently been used for the reception of V.I.P.s travelling to or from the Chinese mainland.

       (b) A new waiting shelter, measuring 24 ft. X 11 ft. was erected at Sha Tin Station.

       (c) A new concrete path, 650 ft. long, leading from Lo Wu Station to the end of the motor road at the south of the Station was constructed for the convenience of the passengers.

       (d) Crowd control barriers were installed at Wo Hop Shek and Kowloon Stations. These barriers were first put to use during the Chung Yeung Festival in 1959 and proved to be very successful in controlling the abnormally large crowd of passengers at these two stations during the festival periods.

       (e) For better control of passengers at Tai Po Market, a length of 300 linear yards of chain-link wired fence was erected at the north of the Station.

       (f) Improvements were made to the drainage systems at Hung Hom Yard and Wo Hop Shek Station.

       (g) A new loading gauge was erected at Lo Wu Station for checking special out-of-gauge loads from China.

60. The figures for the consumption of coal, furnace oil and light fuel diesel oil are shown in Appendices XI, XII and XIII.

   61. Local Purchases and Government Stores. There was a decrease of approximately $68,600 in direct local purchases and purchases through Government Stores compared with the previous year. The decrease was due mainly to fewer purchases of materials for work done for other Government departments.

   62. Indents. A total of forty two indents were forwarded to Crown Agents through Government Stores for materials at an estimated cost of £13,000. Four of the above indents were for materials of U.S. origin,

10

the cost of which was US$4,800.00. Three indents were sent direct to Australia for spare parts for the diesel electric locomotives at a total cost of A£1,900.

       63. The total revenue realized from the sale of surplus serviceable and unserviceable stores was $17,284.87.

STAFF

       64. The establishment of the railway as at 31st March, 1960 was as follows:

135 Pensionable Officers

423 Non-pensionable Officers

54 Daily Rated Staff

612

There was an increase of five from the previous year.

       65. A total of eleven officers retired during the year after serving the railway for periods ranging from nine to thirty six years.

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

       67. The posts of General Manager and Engineer of Way and Works were combined and re-designated as Manager and Chief Engineer from 15th January, 1960.

STAFF WELFARE

       68. The earned leave granted to officers during the year for a total staff of 612 amounted to:

3,071 days vacation leave

6,473 days casual leave

      Total sick leave for the year for all kinds of sickness on full and half pay amounted to 1,119 days and a further 121 days no-pay leave was also approved. Maternity leave totalling 241 days was also granted.

       69. The Railway Club, run purely on subscriptions from railway staff, continued to flourish. Up to 31st March, 1960 the Club had repaid a total of $30,261.50 to Government on the loan of $43,000.00.

       70. 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 always well attended.

11

   71. Sports. During the year the Club entered a team in the miniature football competition organized by the Hong Kong Chinese Civil Servants Association. The Club were the runners-up in this competition.

   72. Education. During the year under review the Railway Club School continued to function successfully with seven classes of forty pupils each, as in the previous year. The pupils' attendance was good with an average of 98.2%, and their progress in studies was very satisfactory. All the sixteen candidates permitted to sit for the 1959 Joint Primary 6 Examination passed every subject required in the examination, while eight did particularly well and were allotted places in secondary schools by the Education Department. In view of the good result of 100% passes and 50% credits the Education Department have specially allowed the school to send two additional candidates to sit for the 1960 Joint Primary 6 Examination.

   73. In order to provide an all-round education for the pupils, extra- curricular activities have been regularly held throughout the year. They were classified under the divisions of moral, academic, art and dramatic, recreational and excursions. Gardening continues to be a subject of interest for the older pupils. With a view to improving the academic standard of the pupils, extra free tuition lessons were held after school hours for backward students and for the senior classes from the begin- ning of the school session. The school staff are to be commended for their painstaking efforts and unfailing co-operation.

   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 24th December, 1959. Some 700 children attended this party. A very entertaining programme of short plays and songs was put on by the students and a magic show by famous local magicians was provided by the Club. Food, soft drinks and toys were distributed to the children during a break in the performance.
