GENERAL SURVEY

LOCAL passenger traffic continued to show an upward trend with an increase over the previous year of 5.33% in the number of journeys. The movement of passengers to and from China fluctuates unpredictably and the number of these passengers carried was 775,254, a decrease of 21.71% as compared with the previous year. The total number of passenger journeys was 6,886,849 as against 6,792,282 for the previous year, an increase of 1.39%.

       2. On 7th February, 1962, the third day of the lunar year (the peak for railway travel during the Chinese New Year period) the number of passengers carried, in all 62,010, was a record for Chinese New Year travel, an increase of 14% over the 1959 record. This large number was handled with only 47 passenger coaches and 8 diesel-electric locomotives available. Railway services were under sustained pressure and the staff was almost overwhelmed by the record crowd.

       3. The import of live pigs from China, which has traditionally been an important feature of incoming goods traffic, declined during the year. The total number imported during the year was 192,590 which was 35,469 less than the previous year and 72,138 below the record figure of 264.728 in 1959-60.

         4. The three model G-16 1950 H.P. diesel electric locomotives ordered from General Motors Overseas Operations in the U.S.A. in January 1961 arrived on 26th August, 1961. With the arrival of these locomotives the railway has completed the modernization programme of changing from steam to diesel-electric traction with a total fleet of 8 diesel-electric locomotives.

        5. From 18th August, 1961 until 3rd November, 1961, the Chinese Section did not allow any passengers from Hong Kong to enter Sham Chun (the border town) without a valid certificate showing that they had been inoculated against cholera at least six days before.

       6. From 16th to 24th August, 1961, a Temporary Isolation Centre was set up in Kowloon Station, Tsim Sha Tsui, by the Urban Services Department as part of the precautionary measures taken against the outbreak of cholera in the Colony.

7. His Excellency the Officer Administrating the Government, Mr. C. B. BURGESS, C.M.G., O.B.E. visited the Railway on 7th September, 1961.

   8. King Mahendra and Queen Ratna of Nepal were conveyed by a Chinese special train from Kowloon to China on 28th September, 1961 and returned to Kowloon on 23rd October, 1961.

   9. On 10th November, 1961 a special train was run to convey Her Royal Highness, Princess Alexandra of Kent, from Kowloon to Fanling for her visit to the New Territories. Her Royal Highness drove the special train from Yau Ma Tei to Sha Tin.

TRAFFIC

10. Traffic earnings for the year under review amounted to $9,049,522 showing a very slight decrease of 0.13% below that of last year. The decrease was mainly due to the outbreak of Cholera in Hong Kong during the months of August, September and October 1961. Comparative figures are shown below:

1961-62

$9,049,522

1960-61 $9,061,543

Decrease $12,021 or 0.13%

   11. Passenger Traffic. Local passenger journeys increased by 5.33% while non-local journeys showed a drop of 21.71%.

   12. On Ching Ming Festival Day, 5th April, 1961 and on Chung Yeung Festival Day, 18th October, 1961, 32 and 31 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, 76,650 and 48,366 passengers respectively excluding the season, monthly and scholar ticket holders were carried.

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

   14. Goods Traffic. Goods traffic showed a slight drop compared with that of last year by 1,203 metric tons in weight and $16,020 in revenue, percentage decreases being 0.34 and 0.76 respectively. In spite of the decrease in goods tonnage the overall receipts on handling charges bettered that of last year by $144,736 or 18.29% as the result of higher offers to the Railway by the Coolie Contractors this year.

   15. The principal commodities imported by rail into Hong Kong during the year under review are shown below:

26. From 1st September, 1961 the sale of the $36 half-yearly scholar ticket which was valid for use during the school term only on four specified trains a day was discontinued because of the very small demand for it. The $48 half-yearly scholar ticket which permits travel on any train during the six month period except on Sundays and Public Holidays continues to be issued.

27. Accidents. The following accidents occurred during the year:

Trespassers killed by trains

Trespassers injured by trains

28. Reference was made in the Report for 1960-61 to the examina- tion of the Railway's accounting system in progress at the end of that financial year. This review, which was completed in 1961-62, indicated that the form in which the accounts had hitherto been presented did not adequately reflect current realities, or provide a reliable guide to the Railway's operating efficiency. It was therefore decided to adopt a revised form of accounts as from 1st April, 1960, based on commercial accounting principles. This decision involved a survey of asset-values, a substantial writing-down of book-values, and the establishment of a Renewals Fund. This latter fund will provide for the future renewal of the major wasting assets (rolling stock and plant), based on estimates of life and of replacement costs.

29. The Accounts now published at Appendices I, II and III are therefore not comparable with those of previous years. The form of accounts is still under review and it is possible that further changes may be made next year.

30. On the basis of the reconstituted accounts, and after providing $1,320,434 for the Renewals Fund, a Gross Operating Profit of $3,869,135 was disclosed. The apparent increase of $622,900 over the previous year resulted primarily from a reversion to a more normal level of expenditure, since the previous year was burdened with the cost of extensive renovation of track and buildings. Gross Traffic Earnings

5

at $9,049,522 were $12,020 lower than in 1961-62. Goods Traffic Earn- ings were up by $115,588 while revenue from Passenger Traffic dropped by $127,608. More passengers were carried than in 1961-62 and a greater mileage covered; the reduction resulted almost entirely from the increasing popularity of season tickets, monthly tickets and scholar tickets.

   31. Nett Profit, at $1,092,263 was $204,843 higher than in 1960-61, the main variations in comparison with the previous year being a reduction of $143,295 in Interest Charges; an increase of $75,764 in Rents and Incidental Revenue and a charge of $644,362 incurred during 1961-62 in respect of the reprovisioning of staff quarters.

   32. During the year, three new diesel electric locomotives were acquired at a capital cost of $3,954,643.

   33. On completion of the review of the accounting system and the reassessment of the financial position of the Railway, which was com- menced in 1960-61, an accumulated deficit of $1,470,200 was disclosed as at 31st March, 1960. Operations since that date, have eliminated this deficit and at 31st March, 1962, the accumulated surplus stood at $509,483. This apparent recovery gives no grounds for complacency, however, as the intensification of services, planned to commence next year, will cause a sharp increase in operating costs which may necessitate a revision of the present fare structure.

MECHANICAL WORKSHOPS

   34. Locomotives. All locomotives functioned well during the year under review. With the arrival of the three new 1950/1800 H.P. diesel electric locomotives on 26th August, 1961, the railway has completed the modernization programme of changing from steam to diesel-electric traction.

   35. During the year twenty nine 5,000 mile inspections, twenty 10,000 mile inspections, five 30,000 mile inspections and two 240,000 mile inspections were performed on the eight diesel-electric locomotives. The wheels of locomotives Nos. 53, 54 and 55 were renewed. Locomo- tive No. 53 was fitted with new cylinder liners and the old liners were rebored for fitting into another locomotive with oversized pistons and rings.

   36. The availability of the diesel electric locomotives for the year was 85.67% which is 1.86% higher than the previous year. Were it not due to the change of wheels for 3 locomotives and the two 240,000 mile

6

inspections causing locomotives to be withdrawn from service for lengthy periods, the availability factor would have been much higher as there was practically no serious trouble in any of the locomotives during the year.

37. The maintenance cost of the diesel-electric locomotives rose from $0.366 to $0.440 per km. The increase was mainly attributable to the renewal of wheels for 3 locomotives and to the renewal of cylinder liners of locomotive No. 53.

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

(a) Carriages Nos. 111, 201, 202, 206, 303, 313, 315, 321, 322, 332,

333 and 334 were overhauled and painted.

(b) Two covered wagons Nos. 45482 and 45483 were converted to

mail wagons.

(c) Eleven wagons were overhauled and painted.

(d) Thirty two wagons were given a general inspection and repair. 39. Work done for other Government Departments. A considerable amount of work was done for other departments of Government. The most important items were the manufacture of 13 hot water cylinders, 100 spalling hammers and 50 bins for refuse hand-carts, the retyring of the rolls of one motor roller, the repair of 91 refuse hand-carts and the machining of 8 cast iron end covers for air-conditioning plants.

40. Statistics.

(a) The average consumption of diesel fuel for the year under review was 3.13 kgs. per engine km. as against 2.89 kgs. per engine km. for the previous year. The increase in consumption was due to the higher fuel consumption of the 3 more powerful locomotives which were put in service at the end of August 1961.

(b) Coal consumption was 13.45 kgs. per train km. and furnace oil consumption was 11.51 kgs. per train km. Since the mileage operated by the steam locomotives was 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 VII to XII while classifica- tions of rolling stock are at Appendices XIII to XVII.

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 in good standard. All the fishplates in the main line were carefully inspected and greased. Some 780 cubic yards of stone ballast were renewed and 4,671 timber sleepers were replaced during the year.

(b) All the rails and fastenings in the main line curves of 5° and above were renewed. In all 492 lengths of 95 lb. 36 ft. long rail were replaced.

(c) The expansion gaps of rail joints in the main line track from Mile 5 to Mile 6 were adjusted. A total of 2,000 sets of 'Railock' resilient fasteners was added to the track.

(d) In order to restore the rails to their proper inclination, the rail seats in the sleepers of the main line curves at Mile, Mile 14, from Mile 101 Mile 10 and from Mile 143-Mile 15 were adjusted by adzing.

   (e) 373 linear yards of track in No. 3 Road at Blackheads Yard, which were laid with 85 lb. rails and steel sleepers were replaced with 95 lb. rails and old concrete sleepers.

43. Embankment. Some 8,020 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.

44. Signalling. (a) All signal arms, point indicators and fouling points were repainted.

(b) An indent was placed for a completely new signalling system to replace the existing signalling system at Kowloon Terminus. The new system will be electrically operated and colour light signals will be used instead of the existing semaphore signals.

45. Tunnels. (a) All tunnels were inspected and maintained in good order during the year.

(b) A new portal, constructed by the Public Works Department over the main line track at Mile 13 to facilitate the crossing of Nairn Road Extension over the railway line, was completed in June 1961. The structure is 940 feet long and is built of reinforced concrete.

46. Bridges and Culverts. (a) Major overhauls were done to Bridge No. 30. The work included the renewal of some 1,600 corroded rivets, strengthening of some of the structural members and repainting.

(b) Bridges Nos. 4, 10, 12, 27, 28, 31, 32, 33, 37 and 38 were repainted.

(c) Rotten sleepers on Bridge No. 30 were renewed.

(d) The culvert underneath 5 tracks near Mile, which forms part of the drainage system for the Tsim Sha Tsui area, was extensively repaired by the Public Works Department. The main line track had to be diverted temporarily for a few weeks to facilitate the work.

47. Road Level Crossings. (a) The crossings gates of the road level crossings at Miles 7, 9, 131, 18 and 19 and Sheung Shui were overhauled and repainted with reflective paint.

(b) Traffic light signals for road vehicles were installed on both sides of the Sheung Shui road level crossing for the control of motor vehicles passing over the crossing.

(c) The road level crossing at Mile 13 was widened to 52 feet in order to cope with the widening of the section of Tai Po Road between the level crossing and Tai Po Market. All the sleepers, top ballast and rails in the track were renewed and new timber flooring laid. Traffic light signals for road vehicles were also installed on both sides of the crossing.

48. Kilometre and Gradient Post. The kilometre and gradient posts along the whole of the main line were repainted.

49. Station Yards and Platforms. (a) As a part of the programme for brightening up railway station premises generally, the fences at Kowloon and Fanling Stations were overhauled and painted with aluminium paint.

(b) Some 750 square yards of the platform surface at Fanling Station were resurfaced with a tar macadam wearing course.

50. Buildings. (a) All the buildings within the railway boundary were inspected periodically for white ants by white ant exterminating con-

tractors.

(b) The Kowloon Terminal Building, station building and shelter at Fanling, station building at Sheung Shui were overhauled and decorated. Station buildings at Yau Ma Tei, Sha Tin and Lo Wu were limed washed and painted.

(c) Major overhauls were done to the stores building at Blackheads.

9

   (d) Major overhauls were carried out on quarters for traffic staff and signal foreman at Blackheads; traffic staff quarters at Sha Tin and Tai Po and headmen, platelayers and operating staff quarters at Lo Wu.

   51. Repairs to Typhoon Damages. Minor damage was done to doors, windows and roofs of Railway buildings by typhoon 'Alice' in May. The passing of typhoon 'Olga' in September resulted in minor damages to the seawalls and caused slips in cuttings at Mile 14 and Mile 101, where retaining walls had to be constructed to prevent further slips.

   52. New Work and Improvements. (a) A block of new staff quarters for senior Railway officers was constructed off Wylie Road, Kowloon, to replace the two blocks of old quarters at Gascoigne Road, which were demolished to make way for the Nairn Road Extension.

   (b) Overhauling and re-decoration of the remaining 14 houses of the block of 28 one-storeyed buildings at Luen Wan Street was effected, thereby completing the two-year programme for the conversion of the 28 Luen Wan Street buildings into staff quarters.

(c) The disused shelter at Tai Po Station was converted into two quarters to accommodate two signal fitters who are required to perform on-call duties after normal duty hours.

(d) The foreman's quarter at Yau Ma Tei Station was converted into two quarters to accommodate two Assistant Headmen, following the demolition of Mile 3 Ganghut to make way for new development.

(e) Improvements to drainage along the main line included the con- struction of a new culvert and some 500 linear feet of cement concrete storm water channel at Mile 14 and the extension of an existing culvert at Mile 10.

53. Railway Land. The following areas of Railway land were let out on permit for various purposes:

STORES

56. All allocated and unallocated stores were completely checked by the staff of this department in March 1962. With the exception of light fuel diesel oil the physical stock and ledger balances were found to be in order.

       57. At the close of the financial year a deficiency of 2,222 I.G. of light fuel diesel oil was recorded. This loss was mainly due to the difference in temperature of oil between the time of receipt and issue as the variation in temperature would cause a change in its volume. Loss was also caused by the wastage occurred when the storage tanks were cleaned out.

       58. A comparative statement of purchases for the year 1960-61 and 1961-62 is given below:

         59. Coal. With the arrival of 3 more diesel-electric locomotives the purchase of coal during the year was only 50 tons, a decrease of 160 tons on the previous year. The average price of coal was $99.00 per ton delivered to railway bunkers.

       60. Furnace Oil. The purchase of furnace oil was also dropped to 11,212 I.G., a decrease of 65,222 I.G. compared with the previous year. The cost was $0.545 per I.G.

        61. Light Fuel Diesel Oil. In consequence of the running of 3 more powerful diesel-electric locomotives at the latter part of the year, the consumption of diesel oil went up. The quantity purchased during the

11

year was 366,448 I.G. compared with 319,055 I.G. for the previous year, an increase of 47,393 I.G. The price of oil dropped from $0.88 to $0.79 per I.G.

   62. The figures for the consumption of coal, furnace oil and light fuel diesel oil are shown in Appendices VIII, IX and X.

63.

       Local Purchases and Government Stores. There was an increase of approximately $54,000 in direct local purchases over the previous year. This increase was to a large extent due to the purchase of materials for the renewal of electrical installation at stations, the erection of more platform lamps, the installation of water pumps for the new staff quarters off Wylie Road and the resurfacing of floors of 6 passenger coaches. There was no change in purchases through Government Stores.

   64. Purchases through Crown Agents. The payment of $3,954,627.41 for 3 diesel-electric locomotives accounted for the great increase in purchases through Crown Agents.

   65. Indents. A total of 47 indents were forwarded to Crown Agents through Government Stores for materials at an estimated cost of £70,200. These included an order for new signalling system for Kowloon Terminus from the Swedish Ericsson Co., Ltd., in the United Kingdom for £38,066, and 6 orders for diesel-electric locomotive spare parts from General Motors Overseas Operations in the U.S.A. totalling US$18,400. Only one indent was placed in Australia for spare parts for diesel- electric locomotives at a cost of A£1,650.

   66. A sum of $23,439.38 was realized from the sale of surplus serviceable and unserviceable stores.

STAFF

   67. The establishment of the Railway as at 31st March, 1962 was as follows:

133 Pensionable Officers

440 Non-pensionable officers

12 Daily Rated Staff

585

There was a reduction of 17 over the previous year.

   68. Mr. G. D. EDEN, A.C.W.A., Treasury Accountant, was appointed as Senior Accountant on 1st November, 1961 to replace Mr. A. A. WHITNEY Who proceeded on vacation leave to England.

        69. Mr. WONG U-lam, A.M.I.Mech.E., A.M.I.Loco.E., Assistant Mechanical Engineer, was appointed as Acting Mechanical Engineer on 1st August, 1961.

       70. A total of 13 officers retired during the year after serving the railway for periods ranging from 9 to 36 years.

       71. Earned leave granted during the year to the total staff of 585, amounted to:

4,137 days vacation leave 6,605 days casual leave.

Total paid sick leave for the year amounted to 1,756 days and a further 38 days no-pay leave was also approved. Maternity leave totalling 150 days was also granted.

       72. Railway Club. The Railway Club, run purely on subscriptions from railway staff, continued to flourish. Up to 31st March, 1962 the Club had repaid a total of $37,425.50 to Government on the loan of $43,000.00. In March, 1962 there were 443 members.

73. 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.

       74. Sports. During the year the Club entered a team in the miniature football competition organized by the Hong Kong Civil Servants' Association. A table tennis tournament was held for teams representing the various sub-departments of the Railway and was enthusiastically supported.

       75. Education. During the year under review, the Railway Club School continued to function with success. The pupils' attendance was good with an average of 98.6% and their progress in studies was satisfactory. All the eighteen candidates who were permitted to sit for the 1961 Joint Primary 6 Examination passed every subject required in the examination, while ten did particularly well and were hence allotted places in secondary schools by the Education Department.

       76. As in previous years, seven classes ranging from Primaries I to VI were run with a total enrolment of 280 pupils. Applications for admission far exceeded the vacant seats available. We could only afford to admit about 12% of the applicants to our school. An expansion is, therefore, considered necessary.

13

77. Apart from the regular bi-weekly extra-curricular activities held in the school, two excursions were organized to the New Territories- Sha Tin and Tai Po. The Boy Scout Group sponsored by the School participated in the Hong Kong Golden Jubilee Jamborette held in December 1961. Gardening continued to be a subject of keen interest to pupils of the upper classes. They managed, with success, to handle in their spare time a vegetable and flower garden of over twenty thousand square feet in area. The result of their work has considerably brightened the atmosphere of the School.

   78. Free tuition lessons were regularly given after school hours to backward children. A quiet room for self-study was provided for those pupils whose home environment was not suitable for study. Teachers are to be thanked for this extra work.

   79. Generally speaking, the health of the pupils has been improving. Judging from the record of attendance, there was a drop in sick leave. During the year, arrangements were made with the Medical Authorities to give our pupils anti-cholera inoculations and inoculations against diphtheria.

   80. 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.

   81. Other Social Activities. A picnic to Wu Kwai Sha was held in April 1961 and another picnic to Tai Po was held in November 1961. Both were organized by the Club and were thoroughly enjoyed by the members and their families.
