GENERAL SURVEY

THE year closed with a surplus of operating revenue over expenditure of $5,345,923.07 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 $3,619,690.95.

       2. Gross income was $9,672,524.57 the highest since the financial year 1950-51 and $1,034,357.42 more than the previous year. There was a higher operating expenditure of $4,326,601.50 or $230,450.80 more than the previous year. The increased operating expenditure was brought about by increases in personal emoluments and in pensions and gratuities.

3. Local passenger traffic continued to show an upward trend with an increase over the previous year of 6.54% in the number of journeys. Non-local passenger traffic also increased and was 11.77% more than the previous year in the number of journeys.

       4. In the case of goods traffic, both the export tonnage and import tonnage increased compared with the previous year, the export tonnage by 60.88% and the import tonnage by 23.38%.

5. The import of live pigs from China, which has traditionally been an important feature of incoming goods traffic, declined during the year. The total for the whole year amounted to 228,059 head as against 256,307 head for the previous year, but the importation of cattle rose from 5,958 head to 24,016 head.

         6. Orders for 3 model G-16 1950 H.P. diesel-electric locomotives from General Motors Overseas Operations in the U.S.A. and for 23 passenger coaches from Metropolitan-Cammell Carriage and Wagon Co. Ltd. in the United Kingdom were placed through the Crown Agents for Oversea Governments and Administrations on 10th January, 1961 and 27th February, 1961 respectively. It is expected that the locomotives will arrive about August 1961 and the coaches at about monthly intervals between July 1962 and December 1962. With the arrival of the new rolling stock it will be possible to provide a better and more frequent train service than at present.

Increase $1,053,073 or 14.15%

11. Passenger Traffic. Passenger journeys, both local and non-local, have increased, the local by 6.54% and non-local by 11.77%.

12. On Ching Ming Festival Day, 5th April, 1960 and on Chung Yeung Festival Day, 28th October, 1960, 32 and 29 special trains respectively were run in addition to the normal service to facilitate passengers visiting the cemeteries at Wo Hop Shek and Sandy Ridge. On these two days 77,098 and 49,896 passengers respectively were carried.

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

  14. Goods Traffic. Goods traffic improved over the previous year by 70,304 metric tons in weight and $525,299 in revenue, percentage increases being 25.18 and 32.86 respectively. The overall receipts on handling charges also increased by $51,140 or 6.81% on account of the increased tonnage.

25. On 9th June, 1960 typhoon 'Mary' hit the Colony. The train service was suspended from 6.30 hours to 14.00 hours after which a restricted service was run in the afternoon between Kowloon and Fanling when that part of the line was clear for traffic. Normal service was resumed the following morning with the exception of the first down train which started from Sheung Shui instead of Lo Wu.

30. The Operating Account showed a surplus of $5,345,923.07 for the year-$803,906.62 more than the year before. Operating Revenue at $9,672,524.57 was $1,034,357.42 more than the previous year. Operat- ing Expenditure at $4,326,601.50 was $230,450.80 more than the previous year. The ratio of expenditure to revenue was 44.73% as against 47.42% last year, a decrease of 2.69%.

31.

Passenger revenue totalled $5,676,763,85 an increase of $435,960.62 compared with the previous year while goods revenue totalled $2,116,040.60 an increase of $510,283.70 over the previous year.

32. The Profit and Loss

Loss Account showed a net profit of $3,619,690.95-a figure $950,829.03 more than the previous year. The total surplus carried forward in the Balance Sheet now amounts to $4.011,601.26 after Amortization of Special Expenditure by $3,000,000.00 during the year.

       33. Capital outlay on additions and improvements amounted to $1,240,555.30. The main items were $595,617.54 for rails and fastenings, $255,444.64 for conversion of three wooden coaches to steel and

5

$301,414.88 for conversion of railway buildings at Luen Wan Street, improvement of station latrines, reprovisioning of staff quarters and a waiting shelter at Sheung Shui Station.

   34. The book value of realizations under the heading of property abandoned totalled $657,357.32 which included $653,727.07 for four old locomotives, one railway bus and one railway lorry. The total book value of capital assets rose from $50,899,695.07 to $51,482,893.05 an increase of $583,197.98.

   35. An examination of the railway's accounting system was under- taken, but had not been completed by the end of the financial year. It is hoped that this review will enable a better appreciation to be made. of the operating economics of the railway, and that its result will be included in the 1961-62 report. Preliminary indications are that the profitability of the railway is much less than is shown by the existing system of accountancy. 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

36. Locomotives. All locomotives functioned well with the exception of locomotive No. 53 which suffered main generator failure due to rather unusual circumstances. It started with the breakage of a wire band of the auxiliary generator which was located so close to the blower that some parts of the broken wires were drawn into the main generator by suction of the blower. In order to remove the broken wires the main generator had to be dismantled, thus causing the withdrawal of locomo- tive No. 53 from service for a considerable length of time.

  37. During the year twenty two 5,000 mile inspections, seventeen 10,000 mile inspections, six 30,000 mile inspections and three 240,000 mile inspections were performed on the five diesel-electric locomotives. The wheels of locomotive No. 52 were renewed and the tyres on the wheels of locomotive No. 54 were turned. Locomotives Nos. 51, 52, 53 and 55 were repainted.

38. The availability factor of the diesel-electric locomotives for the year was 83.81% which is 7.31% lower than the previous year. This drop was the result of the generator failure of locomotive No. 53 and the three 240,000 mile inspections causing locomotives to be withdrawn from service for lengthy periods.

6

        39. The cost of maintenance of the diesel-electric locomotives rose from $0.344 to $0.366 per km. The slight increase was due to increasing age of the locomotives and the renewal of many parts during the year under review.

       40. 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 remaining three wooden bodied carriages Nos. 202, 304 and 316 were rebuilt with steel, thus completing the five- year programme for the conversion of sixteen wooden bodied carriages to steel for reasons of both passenger safety and economy in maintenance.

       (b) Carriages Nos. 107, 110, 207, 302, 312, 329 and 331 were over- hauled.

(c) 58 wagons were given a general inspection and repair.

       41. 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 149 traffic bollards, 10 traffic pagodas, 7 hot water cylinders, 80 spalling hammers, the repair of 66 refuse hand carts and the machining of a number of 48" diameter cast iron pipes.

       42. Statistics. (a) The average consumption of diesel fuel for the year under review was 2.89 kgs. per engine km. as against 2.94 kgs. per engine km. for the previous year. The decrease in consumption was due to the renewal of a number of pistons and rings of the diesel engines when they reached the repair limits during the year.

       (b) Coal consumption was 13.83 kgs. per train km. and furnace oil consumption was 10.68 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.

        (c) Statistical statements relating to analysis of train and locomotive kilometrage, coal and fuel oil running expenses, consumption of lubricants and costs of repair 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

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

7

   44. 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) There was no major renewal during the year. Spot renewals included the replacement of six 95 lb. cracked rails 36 ft. long, five 1 in 8 95 lb. crossings, five 1 in 10 95 lb. crossings, one set of 18 ft. 95 lb. switches and one set of 15 ft. 95 lb. switches. Of the 1 in 10 crossings one was replaced by a manganese alloy crossing and two others were replaced by old 95 lb. crossings reconditioned by our own work- shops. The latter were put in as an experiment and so far have proved satisfactory.

(c) The expansion gaps of rail joints in the portion of the main line track from Mile 73 to Mile 8 and from Mile 12 to Mile 122 were ad- justed. A total of 500 rail anchors was added. In other parts of the main line track rail creep was kept under control.

   (d) Due to excessive wear on the rail head of the outer rails on the curve at Mile 14, all outer rails of this curve were turned so that the worn edges face outwards. In all, 35 lengths of rail were turned.

   (e) Some 550 cubic yards of stone ballast were renewed in No. 2 Tunnel, on Bridges Nos. 4 and 5, underneath Bridge No. 2 and inside the locomotive yard.

(f) 3,495 timber sleepers were renewed during the year.

   45. Embankments. Some 8,660 cubic yards of earth obtained from the new Military Hospital site at King's Park were sent out by ballast trains for repairing the shoulders of the railway embankments along the main line from Kowloon to Lo Wu.

   46. Signalling. (a) All signal gantries, signal arms, point indicators and fouling points were overhauled and repainted. Reflective paints and reflectorized sheets were used on the signal arms and point indicators in the outstations and all fouling points. The improvement to visibility of the signals at night has proved a great help to engine drivers.

   (b) The un-armoured signal cables at Ma Liu Shui Station and Wo Hop Shek Station, which had become ineffective and caused frequent signal break-downs were replaced with armoured cables. A total of 4,800 linear yards of armoured cable was used.

47.

     Tunnels. All tunnels were inspected and maintained in as good order as funds permitted during the year. Another length of 200 linear yards of No. 5 Tunnel was thoroughly cleansed with high pressure jets of a mixture of detergent and water and sprayed with inch cement

8

mortar by the 'Aerocem' process during the year, thus completing the programme for the repair of No. 5 Tunnel.

48. Bridges. Bridges Nos. 1 and 22 were overhauled and repainted. Rotten sleepers on Bridges Nos. 22, 30, 31, 32, 33, 35 and 36 were renewed.

49. Road Level Crossings. The gates of the road level crossings at Miles 7, 9, 131, 18, 19 and Sheung Shui were repainted with reflective paint as a contribution towards the safety of road traffic approaching the crossings. The road level crossing at the north of Sheung Shui Station was widened to 60 ft. as a result of the widening of the San Fung Avenue. All the sleepers, top ballast and rails in the track were renewed and a new timber decking was installed.

50. Kilometre and Gradient Posts. The kilometre and gradient posts along the whole of the main line were overhauled and repainted.

51. 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 building and the waiting shelters at Tai Po Market Station.

(c) The platform awnings at Kowloon terminus were completely overhauled and repainted.

52. Staff Quarters. The platelayers quarters at Yau Ma Tei, head- men and platelayers quarters at Mile 3, Mile 16 and Fanling Station, traffic quarters at Lo Wu Station and at Hung Hom, station master's and traffic quarters at Fanling were everhauled and re-decorated.

53. Railway Workshops. All the buildings of the Hung Hom railway workshops were overhauled and repainted.

54. Repair to Typhoon Damage. As a result of the passing of typhoon 'Mary' damage was done to the railway buildings, seawalls, fencing, cuttings and embankments. Repair work included reconstruction of the collapsed permanent way store shed at Hung Hom, renewal of some 2,100 sq. ft. of damaged asbestos sheet roofing in the goods shed at Kowloon Station, repointing of 160 sq. yds. of the seawall at Mile 12, re-erection of approximately 500 linear ft. of fencing blown down in the locomotive yard, repair of the wash-outs at Miles 6, 15, 17 and from Miles 193 to 21.

55. New Work and Improvements. (a) New flush latrines were con- structed at Blackheads, Yau Ma Tei, Tai Po, Tai Po Market, Wo Hop

9

Shek, Fanling, Sheung Shui and Lo Wu Stations to replace the old dry latrines.

(b) To speed up the handling of goods at Yau Ma Tei Station, an additional low platform 15 ft. wide x 300 ft. long was constructed next to the No. 1 siding of the station.

(c) To provide better facilities for collecting tickets at Sheung Shui Station, a steel framed shelter measuring 22 ft. x 15 ft. was erected at the north end of the platform.

(d) A new waiting shelter was erected at Sheung Shui Station. It measures 78 ft. x 20 ft. with a coverway connecting it to the main station building.

(e) The waiting shelter at Sha Tin was extended by 24 ft. x 11 ft. (f) A new reinforced cement concrete box culvert 5 ft. x 5 ft. was constructed at Mile 6 underneath the track to prevent flooding of the areas along the railway embankment during heavy rains.

(g) To prevent flooding under Bridge No. 2 at Hung Hom, a length of 514 ft. of new storm water channel was constructed. Improvements were also made to existing open channels in the vicinity.

(h) Fourteen of the block of 28 one-storeyed buildings at Luen Wan Street near Yau Ma Tei Station were overhauled and re-decorated for use as staff quarters.

There was a reduction of ten from the previous year.

   70. A total of fourteen officers retired during the year after serving the railway for periods ranging from eight to thirty six years. Included among the retirements was Mr. LEE Wang-hing, M.Sc. (M.I.T., U.S.A.), who was appointed as Mechanical Engineer on 12th February, 1953 and retired on 5th December, 1960. Mr. LEE joined the railway on 21st December, 1945 as Assistant Mechanical Engineer.

71. Mr. MA Tsok-leung, Traffic Assistant, returned to the Colony on 2nd October, 1960 after completing an eighteen months Traffic Apprentice course with the Eastern Region of British Railways. Mr. MA was well reported upon by the officer in charge of his course and clearly justified his selection for the special training.

72. Apart from fourteen apprentices who were permitted to remain on daily rates of pay until they have completed their apprenticeship, the remaining daily rated staff were transferred to monthly rates of pay

12

on 1st April, 1960. The transfer followed recommendations of the Hong Kong Salaries Commission, 1959 to the effect that the practice of recruiting staff on daily rates, except for purely casual labour of short duration, be stopped.

STAFF WELFARE

       73. The earned leave granted to officers during the year for a total staff of 602 amounted to:

3,320 days vacation leave

6,1991 days casual leave.

Total sick leave for the year for all kinds of sickness on full pay amounted to 2,190 days and a further 59 days no-pay leave was ap- proved. Maternity leave totalling 307 days was also granted.

       74. The Railway Club, run purely on subscriptions from railway staff, continued to flourish. Up to 31st March, 1961 the Club had repaid a total of $33,843.50 to Government on the loan of $43,000.00.

       75. 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.

       76. Sports. During the year the Club entered a team in the miniature football competition organized by the Hong Kong Chinese Civil Servants' Association. A table tennis tournament was also held for members of the Club and was well supported.

       77. Education. During the year under review, the Railway Club School continued to function successfully with a total enrolment of 280 in seven classes of 40 pupils each. There were no changes in the teaching staff whose enthusiasm contributed in no small measure to the success of the School. As in the past years, free tuition lessons after school hours were regularly given. The pupils' attendance was good with an average of 98.8%. In the Joint Primary 6 Examination, the record of 100% passes was maintained. All the eighteen candidates for the 1960 Joint Examination were awarded certificates with passes in all subjects while eight of them gained places in secondary schools allotted by Government.

       78. The general health of the pupils showed quite an improvement. Sick leave taken was reduced by 13% compared with the record of the previous year. Vaccinations and inoculations against epidemic diseases were regularly given to the pupils by arrangement with the Government Medical Department.

13

   79. Apart from academic studies, bi-weekly extra-curricular activities were regularly held as in previous years under five divisions-moral, art, dramatic, recreational and excursion. Gardening continued to be a subject of interest for older pupils.

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

   81. Other Activities. A Chinese chess competition was held for teams representing the various sub-departments of the Railway and was enthusiastically supported. Other social activities had to be curtailed due to insufficient funds.
