2. There has been a continuous upward trend in both the passenger and goods traffic. The number of passengers has gone up to more than 2 times while the goods tonnage to nearly 33 times during the past 10 years (see Appendices XVII and XVIII).

3. Local passenger traffic continued to show an upward trend. The total number of local passengers carried during the fiscal year was 7,595,145, an increase of 16.83% over the previous year. This increase was mainly due to the rapid increase in population in the New Territories. The movement of passengers to and from China fluctuates unpredictably and the number of these passengers carried was 648,361, a drop of 10.36% below the previous year.

4. In the case of goods traffic, over 95% of them was imported goods from China. The imported tonnage was 468,222, an increase of 22.89% over the previous year. The export tonnage was only 1,207, a drop of 87.91%.

5. In order to improve the efficiency of train operation at Kowloon Terminus a new power signalling system was installed at Kowloon Station yard to replace the very old mechanical signalling system. The new system was put into operation from 28th November, 1963 and has been working in a very satisfactory manner.

6. For the periods from 1st July, 1963 to 31st January, 1964 and from 22nd February, 1964 to 7th March, 1964, 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 innoculated against cholera at least six days before.

7. Mr. Aly SABRY, Premier of the United Arab Republic and his party were conveyed by a Chinese special train from Canton to Kowloon after their visit to China on their way to India.

8. All members of the staff worked well. In particular the large increase in traffic threw considerable extra work on all stations and operating staff; and they are to be commended for the efficiency and willingness with which they carried out their extra duties.

ACCOUNTS

27. The Gross Operating Profit for the year was $4,301,942 represent- ing an increase of 31.28% as compared with the figure of $3,276,996 in the previous year. This was due to an increase in Gross Operating 1 Receipts-Passenger Traffic Receipts increasing by 11.5%, i.e., from $5,683,371 in 1962-63 to $6,334,610 in 1963-64 and Goods Traffic Receipts increasing by 10.6%, i.e., from $3,998,091 in 1962-63 to : $4,421,003 in 1963-64. The Nett Profit transferred to the Appropriation

5

  Account, at $1,451,798, was $711,323 higher than the figure of $740,475 for the previous year.

   28. There has been no substantial increase of assets during the year other than expenditure of $583,364 for the installation of signals and switches and $244,458 for the platform awning and improvements to goods yard at Yau Ma Tei.

29.

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 under private treaty grant for railway use. No charge for the use of land is borne by the Railway Accounts.

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

MECHANICAL WORKSHOPS

   31. During the year all locomotives, rolling stock, electrical and mechanical equipment, machinery and plant were maintained in an efficient state.

   32. Locomotives. During the year thirty-three 5,000 mile inspections, twenty-five 10,000 mile inspections and ten 30,000 mile inspections were performed on the eight diesel electric locomotives. The cylinder liners and pistons of locomotive No. 52 were renewed and the old liners were rebored for fitting into other locomotives with oversized pistons.

   33. The availability of the diesel electric locomotives for the year was 86.70% which is 3.69% higher than the previous year. Every effort was made to shorten the time taken for routine inspections and running repair of locomotives so that greater availability was achieved to meet the increased volume of traffic.

   34. The maintenance cost of the diesel electric locomotive dropped considerably from $0.404 to $0.358 per km. The decrease was attributable to the lower cost of part replacement in the period under review.

   35. Carriages and Wagons. In addition to routine maintenance, the following major works were done on carriages and wagons:

(a) Carriages Nos. 107, 108, 203, 206, 207, 208, 300, 301, 303, 305,||

309, 312, 313, 314, 320, 321, 328 and 332 were overhauled and painted. Carriage No. 329 was painted.

(b) Thirty-four wagons were overhauled and painted.

36. Work done for other Government Departments. A considerable amount of work was done for other departments of Government. The

6

most important items were the manufacture of radium equipment, 2 contour projectors, 50 spalling hammers, 1 hot water cylinder, 18 mild steel flanges for air-conditioning plants and various iron, brass, bronze and aluminium castings, the retyring of the rolls of one motor roller

■ and the repair of 180 refuse hand carts.

37.

Statistics

(a) The average consumption of diesel fuel for the year under review was 3.32 kgs. per engine km. as against 3.26 kgs. per engine km. for the previous year. The slight increase in consumption was due to heavier train loads on both passenger and goods traffic. (b) Statistical statements relating to the analysis of train and locomo- tive running, fuel oil running expenses, consumption of lubricants and cost of repair to locomotives, carriages and wagons will be found at Appendices VII to X while classification of rolling stock are at Appendices XI to XV.

WAY AND STRUCTURES

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

(g) The gradient of the tracks in the sidings at Yau Ma Tei Station

was re-adjusted to facilitate shunting operations.

40. Embankment. Some 3,162 cubic yards of earth and 2,560 cubic yards of dirty stone ballast were sent out by ballast trains for repairing the shoulders of the railway embankments along the main line from Kowloon to Lo Wu.

41. Signalling. A new power signalling system was installed to replace the old mechanical signals at Kowloon Terminus. The new system has been working very satisfactorily since 28th November, 1963.

Road warning signals of wigwag red light and bells for road vehicles were also installed on both sides of this crossing.

(b) The road level crossing at Mile 7 was completely renewed. (c) At the request of Fire Services Department a new road level crossing was installed at the north of Ma Liu Shui Station for the access of fire engines for pumping sea water during emergencies. (d) Traffic Light signals for road vehicles were installed on both sides of the road level crossings at Miles 7, 9, 18 and 19 for safety control of motor vehicles passing over these crossings.

  45. Station Yards. To improve the lorry traffic entering Kowloon Goods Yard some 400 sq. yards of railway track were decked with timber for road crossings and the approach road to the yard was resurfaced. with bituminous materials.

8

53. Light Fuel Diesel Oil. Due mainly to the running of more passenger trains, the consumption of diesel oil increased considerably and the quantity purchased during the year was 93,721 imperial gallons more than that purchased during the previous year. The price remained at $0.76 per imperial gallon.

The figures for the consumption of light fuel diesel oil are shown in Appendix VIII.

54. Purchases from Government Stores. Consequent upon the transfer on 31st March, 1963 of the Kowloon-Canton Railway Unallocated Stores to the Controller of Stores, all unallocated stores were, from 1st April, 1963 onwards, drawn in the normal manner from Government Stores. This accounts for the large increase of $611,197.96 compared with the previous year.

To cope with the new system of primary education introduced by the Education Department, one Special Form I class and two Junior I classes were formed in September 1963 with the elimination of two Primary I classes. There were altogether eight classes with a total enrolment of 320 pupils of 40 pupils each. Furthermore, 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 98.3% and their progress in studies was very satisfactory.

   67. Free tuition lessons were regularly given after school hours to the backward children. A quiet room for self-study was provided for those pupils whose home environment was not suitable for study. This extra work was voluntarily carried out by the teachers themselves.

   68. Generally speaking, the health of the pupils was good. Vaccina- tions and inoculations against epidemic diseases were regularly given to the pupils by arrangement with the Medical and Health Department.
