GENERAL SURVEY

THE financial year 1962-63 has been one of many records. The record figures are shown as follows:

(a) Gross railway revenue $10,429,910 was $63,113 more than the

record of $10,366,797 in 1950-51.

(b) Passenger journeys 7,224,371 was 337,522 more than the record

of 6,886,849 in 1961-62.

(c) Goods tonnage 399,107 was 27,318 more than the record of

371,789 in 1950-51.

(d) Goods revenue $3,998,091 was $497,725 more than the record of

$3.500.366 in 1961-62.

435,7

(e) Number of live pigs by rail from China 435,721 was 170,993

more than the record of 264,728 in 1958-59.

(f) Passenger journeys for any one day reached a new record of 86,226 (on 27th January, 1963, the third day of the lunar year which was the peak for railway travel during the Chinese New Year period). This was 24,216 more than on the same day in 1961-62 and 666 more than the previous record of 85,560 on Ching Ming Festival Day in 1959-60.

2. The 23 new passenger coaches (7 first class, 11 third class and 5 brake vans) ordered in January, 1961 from the Metropolitan-Cammell Carriage & Wagon Co., Ltd. arrived from the United Kingdom and were put into service. With the arrival of the new rolling stock it was possible to improve the train service. A new passenger time-table was introduced on 1st January, 1963 and the number of daily passenger trains each way was increased from 12 to 17. Trains now run at approximately half hourly intervals during the morning and evening rush periods, and hourly during the rest of the day.

        3. The Department suffered damage amounting to $469,069.43 as a result of typhoon 'Wanda', which swept the Colony on 1st September, 1962. Extensive damage was done to the railway embankment and seawalls between Sha Tin Station and Tai Po Market Station, neces- sitating the temporary suspension of services between these two stations: shuttle train services were run between Kowloon and Sha Tin and

1

between Tai Po Market and Lo Wu. Round the clock work on repairs commenced immediately after the passing of the typhoon and through train service between Kowloon and Lo Wu recommenced on the morning of 7th September, 1962 with speed restrictions on the section from Sha Tin to Tai Po Market. Normal service was resumed on 1st October, 1962.

4. A total of 13,551 illegal immigrants was conveyed back to Sham Chun, China, from Fanling by 16 special trains from 22nd to 25th May, 1962.

5. At the request of the Police, a line patrolling railbus was run nightly between Sha Tin and Fanling from 23rd to 29th May, 1962 to detect illegal immigrants from China who hid in the New Territories by day and made their way to Kowloon by night.

6. From 31st August, 1962 until 7th December, 1962 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.

7. His Excellency the Governor, Sir Robert Brown BLACK, G.C.M.G., O.B.E. visited the Railway on 20th September, 1962.

8. Mrs. S. BANDARANAIKE, Prime Minister of Ceylon, and her party were conveyed by a Chinese special train from Kowloon to China on 30th December, 1962 and returned to Kowloon on 9th January, 1963.

9. Dr. Tulsi GIRI, Foreign Minister of Nepal, and his party were conveyed by a Chinese special train from Lo Wu to Kowloon on their return from China on 24th January, 1963.

TRAFFIC

10. Traffic earnings for the year under review amounted to $9,676,655, showing an increase of 6.93% over the previous year. Comparative figures are as shown below:

1962-63 $9,676,655

1961-62 $9,049,522

Increase

$627,133 (6.93%)

  11. Passenger Traffic. Local passenger journeys increased by 6.37% while non-local passenger journeys showed a drop of 6.70%. This drop may have been affected by the several bomb incidents at Sham Chun over the Chinese Border during the year and the consequent restrictions imposed by the Chinese Section.

2

12. The arrival of the 23 new coaches from England enabled the introduction on 1st January, 1963, of a new passenger train time-table of 34 trains per day, as against 24 trains per day under the old time- table.

        13. On Ching Ming Festival Day, 5th April, 1962 and on Chung Yeung Festival Day, 7th October, 1962, 32 and 31 special trains respec- tively 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, 71,050 and 57,567 passengers respectively (excluding season,

• monthly and scholar ticket holders) were carried.

        14. On 27th January, 1963, the third day of the lunar year, the total number of passengers carried was 86,226 which was a 39% increase over the 1962 record of 62,010 for Chinese New Year travel.

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

16. Goods Traffic. Goods traffic improved over the previous year by € 50,807 metric tons, yielding an additional $219,626 in revenue. This represented increases of 14.59% and 10.46% respectively. The overall receipts on handling charges decreased by $16,127 (1.72%) as the result of the lower contracts awarded during the year.

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

21. Some 7,250 metric tons of mail and mail packets were conveyed by rail to China for the Post Office.

  22. One transformer weighing 17 metric tons was conveyed by rail from Kowloon to Fanling for China Light & Power Co., Ltd. on 16th April, 1962.

  23. On 23rd May, 1962, 3 wagons of barbed wire and iron rods were conveyed to Lo Wu for the erection of fences at the border by the Public Works Department.

24. Details of goods traffic appear in Appendix V.

  25. Operation. Train punctuality for the year under review was satisfactory, in spite of speed restrictions. These restrictions were imposed at No. 1 Cutting at Hung Hom for the greater part of the year, owing to the Nairn Road extension project, and on the section between Sha Tin and Tai Po as a result of the extensive damage to the railway embankment and seawalls by typhoon 'Wanda'.

29. At $5,683,371, revenue from Passenger Traffic showed an increase of 2.4% over the previous year, while that from Goods Traffic,

· at $3,998,091, increased by 14.2%. However, Gross Operating Profit dropped by 8.9% of Operating Revenue, due mainly to the cost of damage caused by typhoon 'Wanda' ($469,069) and the additional ¡provision of depreciation entailed by the newly acquired rolling stock

($168,881).

5

30. At $740,475, Nett Profit was down by 4.4% of Operating Revenue as compared with 1961-62.

   31. Government Investment rose by over $7 million in the course of the year and the nett value of assets by over $10,000,000, this being associated primarily with the purchase of new rolling stock and the installation of a new signalling system at Kowloon.

32. The asset 'Land & Formation' stands in the Balance Sheet at a book value of $7,999,708 only, a figure which is considerably below the current market value of the land held under private treaty grant for railway use. No charge for the use of land is borne by the Railway Accounts.

   33. The Accounts and supporting data are published in Appendices I to V to this report.

MECHANICAL WORKSHOPS

   34. Locomotives. All diesel electric locomotives functioned well during the year under review and five completed 300,000 miles of service.

35. During the year twenty-nine 5,000 mile inspections, eighteen 10,000 mile inspections and ten 30,000 mile inspections were performed on the eight diesel electric locomotives. The cylinder liners of locomo- tives Nos. 51, 54 and 55 were rebored and fitted with 0.030 inch oversized pistons and rings. These three locomotives had completed their 300,000 mile service before reboring of the cylinder liners was

necessary.

36. The availability of the diesel electric locomotives for the year was 83.01% which is 2.65% lower than the previous year. Without the reboring of cylinder liners and fitting of oversized pistons for three locomotives, which had to be withdrawn from service for lengthy periods, the availability factor would have been much higher-especially as there was no serious trouble with any of the locomotives during the year.

37. The maintenance cost of the diesel electric locomotives dropped i slightly from $0.440 to $0.404 per km. The slight drop was attributable to a lower cost of part replacement in the period under review.

38. Carriages and Wagons. In addition to routine maintenance, the following major work was done on carriages and wagons:

6

(a) Carriages Nos. 100, 102, 109, 110, 200, 204, 302, 305, 307, 308, 310, 323, 324, 325, 326, 327 and 330 were overhauled and painted. Carriages Nos. 111, 212, and 304 were painted.

(b) Nine wagons were overhauled and painted.

(c) Thirty-four 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 7 hot water cylinders, 50 spalling hammers, 20 brass runners, 8 overhead suspensions, the re-tyring of the rollers of one motor roller and the repair of 122 refuse hand-carts.

40. Statistics.

(a) The average consumption of diesel fuel for the year was 3.26 kgs. per engine km. as against 3.13 kgs. per engine km. for the previous year. The slight increase in consumption was due to the higher fuel consumption of the 3 more powerful locomotives which were in service throughout the year. In the previous year these were only used for a period of four months.

(b) Furnace oil consumption was 33.83 kgs. per train km. Since the mileage operated by the steam locomotives for the year was extremely small this figure cannot be used as an indication of the operating efficiency of steam locomotives.

(c) Statistical statements relating to the analysis of train and locomo- tive running, 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 classifications of rolling stock are at Appendices XIII to XVII.

WAY AND WORKS

        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 fishplates on the main line were carefully inspected and greased. Some 1,513 cubic yards of stone ballast was renewed and 7,242 timber sleepers were replaced during the year.

         (b) All rails and fastenings in the main line curves of 4° and in a section of the track inside Beacon Hill Tunnel were renewed. In all 462 lengths of 95-lb., 36-foot long rails were replaced: of these, 116 lengths were replaced inside Beacon Hill Tunnel.

7

(c) Some 150 yards of track in No. 4 Road at Lo Wu was replaced with good, used 85-lb. rails and all timber sleepers were replaced with old concrete sleepers.

(d) Other spot renewals included two sets of 95-lb., 15-foot switches, one at Kowloon Station and the other at Lo Wu Station; one set of 95-lb., 18-foot switches at Fanling Station and two 95-lb., 1-in-10 crossings, one at Tai Po Station and the other at Lo Wu Station.

(e) Preparatory to the installation of the new power signalling system at Kowloon Station, some 300 yards of track was realigned, 6 turnouts resited and 3 new turnouts installed.

(f) In order to restore the rails to their proper inclination, the rail seats in the sleepers of the main line curve from Mile 21 to Mile 21 and of the loop line at Ma Liu Shui Station were adjusted by adzing.

(g) To prevent rail creep a total of 2,250 rail anchors were inserted between Mile 5 and Mile 6 and between north and south points of Tai Po Station.

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

  (b) Preparations for the renewal of the mechanical signals with power signalling at Kowloon Terminus commenced after the arrival of the Supervisory Engineer from Sweden in December 1962. Preparatory works included re-arranging the mechanical rodding of the old system, pin brazing of rail bonds for track circuits, inserting insulation joints, procuring special tools and equipment, preparation and calling of tenders for the fabrication and erection of colour signal lights and assembly of the system.

44. Formation and Line Protection. (a) Some 8,110 cubic yards of earth and dirty ballast were sent out by ballast trains for repairing the shoulders of railway embankments.

(b) A total of 137 missing boundary stones between Mile 54 and Lo Wu were replaced.

45. Tunnels. All tunnels were inspected and maintained in good order.

46. Bridges. (a) Major overhauls were done to Bridges Nos. 9, 20 and 36. Work included the renewal of a total of 9,300 corroded rivets on these three bridges, strengthening of some of the structural members and repainting. Rotten sleepers on the bridges were also replaced.

(b) Bridge No. 15A was repainted.

8

47. Road Level Crossing. (a) The military level crossing at Mile 21 was re-installed at the request of the Police during the influx of the illegal immigrants in May 1962. This crossing is locked most of the time and is only occasionally used by vehicles belonging to the Water- works Office for gaining access to the Indus River Pumping Station. (b) Two new pedestrian crossings were installed at the north of Sha Tin Station for the convenience of pedestrians crossing the track.

         (c) Traffic light signals for trains were installed on both sides of the 1 level crossing at Sheung Shui by the Public Works Department in

August.

(d) The road level crossings at Mile 18 and Mile 19 were overhauled together with the renewal of all timber sleepers. The track underneath the level crossings at Mile 7 and Mile 9 were packed and adjusted.

(e) All crossing gates were repainted with reflective paint.

48.

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

49. Station Yards and Platforms. (a) The boundary fences at Tai Po, Tai Po Market and Sheung Shui Railway Stations were overhauled and repainted with aluminium paint.

(b) Some 2,300 square yards of the platforms at Tai Po Station and 1,100 square yards at Sha Tin Station were re-surfaced with bituminous materials.

50. Station Buildings. Station buildings at Yau Ma Tei, Sha Tin, Ma Liu Shui and Tai Po were overhauled and redecorated.

       51. Staff Quarters. (a) Permanent way staff quarters at Yau Ma Tei, headmen's and platelayers' quarters at Sha Tin, Ma Liu Shui and Tai Po, workshop foremen's quarters, engine drivers' quarters at Hung Hom, and traffic staff quarters at Yau Ma Tei and Sha Tin were overhauled and redecorated.

(b) The first floor of the old Police quarters inside the Hung Hom Workshop premises was converted into 3 married quarters for store- -keepers and store attendants.

52. Repairs to Typhoon Damage. As a result of the passing of typhoon 'Wanda' on 1st September, 1962, extensive damage was done to seawalls, tracks, buildings and other railway installations. Between Sha Tin and Tai Po, the seawalls and embankments were washed away in some 40 places, necessitating the temporary suspension of traffic between these two stations. Temporary repair works began immediately

9

  after the passing of the typhoon and continued around the clock until the resumption of train service on the 7th of the same month, when permanent repairs were put in hand. Besides minor repairs to windows, doors, channels and signals, the following work was carried out to effect complete repairs of the damages:

(a) Dumping of fill materials consisting of stone, earth and dirty ballast to repair washouts in embankments: 16,700 cu. yds. (b) Temporary realignment and later restoration of track: 560 linear

yards.

(c) Repair to damaged sea walls: 7,110 square yards.

(d) Repointing stone pitching of sea walls: 4,770 square yards.

(e) Repair to coping of sea walls: 1,100 linear yards.

(f) Returfing on slopes of embankments: 5,000 square yards. (g) Repair to roofing: 3,410 square yards.

(h) Repair to and re-erection of fences: 430 linear yards.

   53. New Works and Improvements. (a) For the safety of passengers crossing the railway tracks at Yau Ma Tei Station, an overhead foot- bridge was erected. The bridge has a clear span of 56 feet and width of passageway is 8 feet.

(b) To protect the diesel engines from rain while they are stationed overnight at Lo Wu, a locomotive shed, 124 feet long, was erected.

(c) A new signal cabin was constructed for the power signalling system to replace the old one in Kowloon Station Yard.

(d) To improve the unloading facilities at the goods yard of Yau Ma Tei Station, the tracks were completely realigned with the addition of some 410 linear feet of new track.

(e) To cope with longer trains, platforms at the following two Stations were extended:

At Yau Ma Tei, the main line platform was extended by 320 feet to a total length of 908 feet and the loop line platform by 270 feet to a total length of 967 feet.

At Tai Po Market, the main line platform was extended by 200 feet to a total length of 650 feet.

(f) To increase the covered storage space of Blackheads Store, the two open sides of the store shed were enclosed with galvanized iron sheets and the dangerous goods store was enlarged by 140 square feet.

54. 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, 1963. With the exception of light fuel diesel oil the physical stock and ledger balances were found to be in order.

57. The accumulated deficiency of light fuel diesel oil was 1,329 imperial gallons for the past two years ending 31st March, 1963. This figure, when compared with the deficiency of the previous year, shows = a gain of 893 imperial gallons of oil during the year. The gain was attributed to the variation in temperature between issues and receipts. The stock and ledger balances have now been adjusted and the loss ⚫ written off.

Coal. No coal was purchased during the year.

   60. Furnace Oil. The purchase of furnace oil dropped to 7,500 imperial gallons, a decrease of 3,712 imperial gallons on the previous year. The price of oil dropped from $0.52 to $0.50 per imperial gallon.

   61. Light Fuel Diesel Oil. As a result of the complete dieselization p of the railway and the addition of more passenger trains, the consump-M tion of diesel oil went up considerably at the latter part of the year and the quantity purchased during the year was 430,487 imperial gallons compared with 366,448 imperial gallons for the previous year, an increase of 64,039 imperial gallons. The price also dropped from $0.79 ? to $0.76 per imperial gallon.

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. Both direct local purchases and purchases through Government Stores dropped by $10,042.51 and $30,084.07 respectively compared with the previous year.

64. Purchases through Crown Agents. The payment of $9,335,162.53 for the twenty-three railway carriages and $716,738.06 for the new signalling system accounted for the large increase in purchases through Crown Agents.

   65. Indents. A total of 43 indents were forwarded to Crown Agents è through Government Stores for materials at an estimated cost of £30,800. Six of the above indents were for materials of United States! origin, the cost of which was US$14,700.00. Seven indents were sent direct to Australia for spare parts for diesel-electric locomotives at a total cost of A£1,500.

66. The total revenue realized from the sale of surplus serviceable and unserviceable stores was $92,635.99.

STAFF WELFARE

70. Earned leave granted during the year to the total staff of 660, amounted to:

4,185 days vacation leave

5,643 days casual leave

Total paid sick leave for the year amounted to 1,146 days. 12 days' no pay leave and maternity leave totalling 99 days were also granted.

71. Railway Club. The Railway Club, run purely on subscriptions E from railway staff, continued to flourish. Up to 31st March, 1963, the Club had repaid a total of $41,007.50 to Government on the loan of $43,000.00. In March 1963, there were 429 members.

72. Film Shows. Film shows continued to run once a week through- out the year at the expense of the club for members and their families. These shows were always well attended.

       73. 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.

74. Education. During the year under review, the Railway Club School functioned successfully with a total enrolment of 280 pupils 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. The pupils' attendance was good with an average of 98.6% and their progress in studies was satisfactory. In the Joint Primary 6 Examination, the record of 100% passes was maintained. All the twenty candidates who were permitted to sit for the 1962 Joint Primary 6 Examination passed every subject required in the examination while 9 I did particularly well and were allotted places in secondary schools by

the Education Department.

75. 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

13

subject of keen interest to pupils of the upper classes. During the year under review, a visit of educational value was conducted by the teaching staff to the City Hall and a picnic to the Castle Peak in the New Territories was also held. The pupils enjoyed the tours immensely.

76. Free tuition lessons were regularly given after school hours to backward children. A quiet room for private study was provided for those pupils whose home environment was not conducive to study. This extra work was voluntarily carried out by the teachers themselves. 77. The general health of the pupils was good. Sick leave taken was reduced by 2.5% compared with the record of the previous year. Vaccinations and inoculations against epidemic diseases were regularly given to the pupils by arrangement with the Medical and Health Department.

78. Canteen Facilities. The Club's Canteen continued to provide cheap meals for the lower paid staff and to cater for large parties for Club members.

79. Other Social Activities. A picnic organized by the Club to Fung- Ying Toaist Monastery at Fanling was held on 4th November 1962. It was thoroughly enjoyed by the members and their families. Other social activities had to be curtailed due to insufficient funds.
