GENERAL SURVEY

THIS year closed with very good financial results with a nett profit of $3,015,039 despite of the unprecedented number of typhoons and the exceptionally heavy rainfall which hit the Colony during the year. It has once again been one of many new records for this short line of 22 miles. The record figures are shown as follows:

(a) Gross railway revenue $13,288,745 was $1,768,579 more than

the record of $11,520,166 in 1963-64.

(b) Number of passengers 8,884,101 was 640,595 more than the

record of 8,243,506 in 1963-64.

(c) Goods tonnage 718,336 was 241,034 more than the record of

477,302 in 1963-64.

(d) Goods revenue $5,679,801 was $1,258,798 more than the record

of $4,421,003 in 1963-64.

(e) Number of live pigs by rail from China 1,003,174 was 177,027

more than the record of 826,147 in 1963-64.

(f) Number of passengers carried for any one day reached another new record by 117,272 on 5th April, 1964, Ching Ming Festival Day. This was 27,783 more than the previous record of 89,489 on 5th April, 1963.

2. Both the passenger and goods traffic continued to show an upward trend. (See Appendices XV and XVI).

3. Due to the continuous increase in population in the New Terri- Etories the local passenger traffic has gone up again by 5.14% over the 7 previous year. The total number of local passengers carried during the financial year was 7,985,613. The movement of passengers to and from China fluctuates unpredictably and the number of these passengers carried was 826,646, an increase of 27.50% over the previous year. (See Appendix XIV).

4. Over 98% of the goods carried this year was imported goods from China. The imported tonnage was 710,869, a considerable increase

1

of 51.82% over the previous year. The export tonnage was only 1,377,|| an increase of 14.08%. To cope with the very heavy goods traffic from China two additional sidings had to be installed in the Goods Yard at Blackheads.

   5. For the period from 1st May, 1964 to 24th January, 1965, the Chinese Section did not allow any passengers from Hong Kong to enter the border town Sham Chun without a valid certificate showing that they had been inoculated against cholera at least six days before.

   6. His Royal Highness Prince Souvanna Phouma, Prime Minister of Laos, and his party travelled by a Chinese special train from Canton to Kowloon on 8th April, 1964, after their visit to China on their way back to Laos.

7. His Royal Highness Prince Norodom Sihanouk, Head of State of Cambodia, and his party travelled by a Chinese special train from Kowloon to China on 26th September, 1964, for a visit to China at the invitation of the Chinese Government.

8. His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Abdullah, brother of King Hassan the Second, and his Moroccan delegation to Peking for the Chinese anniversary celebrations travelled by a Chinese Special Train from Kowloon to China on 29th September, 1964.

TRAFFIC

9. Traffic earnings for the year under review amounted to $12,556,657 showing an increase of 16.76% over the amount of the previous year. Comparative figures are as shown below:

1964-65 $12,556,657

1963-64

$10,755,613

Increase

$1,801,044 (16.76%)

10. Passenger Traffic. Local and non-local passenger journeys increased by 5.14% and 27.50% respectively. The considerable increase of the latter was chiefly attributed to the increase of Sham Chun bound passengers on journeys to see the various shows and operas staged therein quite frequently.

11. To facilitate passengers visiting the cemeteries at Wo Hop Shek and Sandy Ridge, 31 special trains in addition to the normal service of 34 trains, were run on Ching Ming Festival Day, 5th April, 1964

2

and 8 on Chung Yeung Festival Day, 14th October, 1964. On these two days, 117,272 and 25,297 passengers (excluding season, monthly and scholar ticket holders) respectively were carried. The figure of 117,272 is a new record for the number of passengers carried in one day.

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

13. Goods Traffic. There was a considerable increase in goods traffic during the year. The increase over the previous year was 241,034 metric tons in weight and $1,146,474 in revenue, representing percent- age increases of 50.50 and 42.73 respectively. The large increase in goods traffic was due to the increasing amount of exports from China.

17. During the year under review, notable commodities to China by rail were 706 metric tons of personal effects, 103 metric tons of diplomatic belongings, 41 metric tons of sewing machines, 51 metric tons of bicycles, 31 metric tons of newspapers, 24 metric tons of printed matters and 16 metric tons of electric appliances.

18. Some 5,336 metric tons of mail and mail packets compared with some 6,436 metric tons in the preceding year were conveyed by rail to China for the Post Office. This amount was distributed very evenly over the whole period under review.

19. Details relating to goods traffic appear in Appendix V.

20. Operation. Train punctuality for the year under review was poor. This poor result was mainly caused by the imposition of speed restrictions to trains for practically the whole year round as a result of the constructions of the water tunnel under the railway line near

4

Tai Po Tau for the Plover Cove Water Scheme and the Indus River Pumping Station near Mile 21, and the laying of telephone cables and pipeline across the railway tracks in Kowloon Station Yard for Peninsula Hotel. The record number of typhoons, Viola (on 28.5.64), Ida (on 8.8.64), Ruby (on 5.9.64), Sally (on 10.9.64), Tilda (on 15.9.64) and Dot (on 13.10.64) also played a part in interrupting the normal schedules and causing train delays considerably.

ACCOUNTS

24. The Gross Operating Profit for the year was $5,589,323 repre- senting an increase of 29.93% as compared with the figure of $4,301,942 in the previous year. This was due to an increase in Gross Operating Receipts-Passenger Traffic Receipts increasing by 8.56%, i.e., from $6,334,610 in 1963-64 to $6,876,856 in 1964-65 and Goods Traffic Receipts increasing by 28.47%, i.e., from $4,421,003 in 1963-64 to $5,679,801 in 1964-65. The Nett Profit transferred to the Appro- priation Account, at $3,015,039, was $1,563,241 higher than the figure of $1,451,798 for the previous year.

25. There has been no substantial increase of assets during the year other than expenditure of $132,292 for overhauling bridge No. 24 and provision of cover at Lo Wu Frontier Bridge, and $232,571 for im- provements to Railway Stations.

   26. 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.

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

MECHANICAL WORKSHOP

28. All diesel electric locomotives functioned well during the year and all rolling stock, electrical and mechanical equipment, machinery and plant were maintained in a very efficient running condition.

   29. Locomotives. During the year thirty-six 5,000 mile inspections, twenty-five 10,000 mile inspections and eleven 30,000 mile inspections were performed on the eight diesel electric locomotives. The cylinder liners of locomotive No. 53 were rebored and fitted with 0.030 inch oversized pistons and rings. Five Locomotives had their wheels turned, piston rings renewed and traction motors completely overhauled. Two locomotives were fitted with new voltage regulators of improved design which were found most efficient and satisfactory in operation.

30. The availability factor of the diesel electric locomotives for the year was 86.09% which is about the same as the previous year. The maintenance of this high availability inspite of the greater amount

6

of repair work done during the year was due to the very good effort of the Workshop staff in shortening the time taken for routine inspec- tion and general repair of the locomotives.

          31. The maintenance cost of the diesel electric locomotives rose from $0.358 to $0.428 per km. The rise was attributed to the increased labour wages and the higher costs of the spare parts.

        32. Carriages and Wagons. In addition to routine maintenance and repairs, the following carriages and wagons were completely over- hauled and painted.

(a) Carriages Nos. 111, 200, 202, 208, 209, 210, 304, 315, 316, 319,

331, 333, 334, and 337.

(b) Forty-five wagons of various sizes.

       33. Work done for other Government Departments. A very large amount of work was done for other departments of Government. The most important items were the manufacture of 207 aluminium castings, 64 bronze castings, 66 brass castings, 55 iron castings, 38 phosphor bronze castings, radium equipment, 1 hot water cylinder, 2 traffic pagodas and 80 stainless steel equipment and the repair of 164 refuse hand carts and 222 hospital equipment.

34.

Statistics

(a) The average consumption of diesel fuel for the year was 3.30 kgs. per engine km. as against 3.32 kgs. per engine km. for the previous year.

(b) Statistical statements relating to the analysis of train and locomotive running, fuel oil running expenses, consumption of lubricants and cost of repair to locomotives, carriages and wagons will be found at Appendices VI to IX while classifica- tion of rolling stock are at Appendices X to XIII.

WAY AND STRUCTURES

35. Maintenance. Due to the unusually large number of typhoons in the year under review, normal maintenance was seriously interrupted and the Way and Works Section was kept very busy throughout the year.

36. Track. In addition to the extra volume of work resulting from the frequency of typhoons, the increase in traffic since 1963 and the corrosive discharge from the cold storage wagons of the Chinese Section

7

placed addition burden of work on the permanent way staff. Although slight improvements were effected on the cold storage wagons, following discussions with the Chinese Section, exchange of correspondence continued right up to the end of the year under review in the hope of finding a permanent solution. The following were works carried out during the year:

(a) The main line track was maintained to a good standard. All fish- plates were carefully inspected and greased. Some 192 lengths of 95 lb. rails, 1,730 cubic yards of stone ballast and 7,900 sleepers were renewed during the year.

(b) Badly corroded track components were renewed wherever neces- sary. During the year some 330 pairs of fishplates, 2,900 fishbolts and 30,000 dogspikes were replaced.

(c) For the purpose of restoring the rails to their proper inclination, the rails seats in the sleeper of the main line curves at Mile 11, 15 and 21 were adjusted by adzing.

(d) The expansion gaps of the rail joints from Mile 6 to Mile 63

were adjusted with the addition of 570 rail anchors.

(e) Five turnouts, three crossings and two sets of switches were renewed in Kowloon and Hung Hom Yards and at Ma Liu Shui, Tai Po Market and Lo Wu Stations.

37. Embankment and Cutting. Some 750 cubic yards of earth were sent out by ballast train to repair the shoulders of railway embankments from Mile 10 to Mile 123. As a safety measure, a total of 60 cubic yards of dangerous boulders in the cutting at Mile 10 was removed.

38. Signalling. The power signalling system at Kowloon Terminus worked very satisfactorily during the year. The gantries, brackets, arms of all signals along the line and the point indicators of all the points were overhauled and repainted.

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

40. Bridges

(a) Major overhaul was done to Bridge No. 24 at Tai Po Market. The work included the renewal of some 6,300 corroded rivets and the corroded steel members, the strengthening of the two 40-foot span girders reinforced with additional steel plates and repainting the whole bridge.

8

(b) The two steel troughs which formed the main structural part of

Bridge No. 29 were reinforced with steel plates.

(c) All rotten sleepers on Bridges, Nos. 6, 7, 22 and 24 and all the

rotten decking timber on Bridge No. 38 were renewed.

(d) Bridges Nos. 1, 15A, 34 and 35 were repainted.

41. Road Level Crossings

(a) All the decking timber on the road level crossings at Mile 9 and Mile 18 and part of the decking timber on the level crossing at Sheung Shui were renewed. All the fastenings in the decking and the stone ballast under the tracks in the road level crossings at Mile 7 and Mile 19 were renewed.

(b) All the crossing barriers were repainted with reflective paints.

42. Station Yards and Platforms

(a) At Lo Wu, 1,000 sq. yards of the station platforms were re- surfaced with bituminous wearing course and approximately 70

sq. yards with cement concrete. A total length of 460 feet of open channel was constructed in the station yard for better drainage between the railway tracks.

(b) The platform awnings in Kowloon Terminus were overhauled and repainted including the renewal of 400 sq. yards of asbestos roofing.

43. Station Buildings

(a) The station buildings at Ma Liu Shui and Sheung Shui were

overhauled and redecorated.

(b) The restaurant inside Kowloon Terminus was redecorated includ- ing fitting with double doors and fly-proof windows and the renewal of the whole floor with mosaic tiles.

44. Staff Quarters. Major overhauls were done to Wylie Court Quarters at Hung Hom, Luen Wan Street Quarters and No. 2 Ganghut at Yau Ma Tei, Traffic Quarters at Sha Tin and Tai Po Kau Stations, Running Staff Quarters, Ganghut and platelayers family quarters at Lo Wu.

45. New Works and Improvements

(a) To protect passengers against sun and rain, the whole of Bridge No. 38 at the border between the British and Chinese Sections was roofed over with Stucco-finished aluminium sheeting fixed on steel trussed arches.

9

(b) To improve the loading and unloading facilities in the goods yard within the Kowloon Terminus, some 1,400 sq. yards of the yard were surfaced with cement concrete.

(c) To cater for more goods wagons, two additional sidings were laid in the Goods Yard at Blackheads. The work involved the laying of four turnouts and 1,695 yards of plain track. A total length of 790 feet of the existing sidings was also removed to improve the traffic flow within the yard.

(d) To ensure the continuous supply of flushing water during the dry season, bore hole wells were drilled at Yau Ma Tei and Tai Po Market Stations. Additional wells were also sunk at Fanling and Lo Wu Stations.

(e) A waiting shelter, with heat insulation roofing resting on steel trusses, was erected at Fanling Station. The shelter, measuring 30 feet × 22 feet, was to replace the old shelter demolished during the laying of the 54" diameter water pipes under the platform.

46. Typhoon Damages. The year under review was phenomenal in that no less than ten typhoons visited or affected Hong Kong. Although the accumulative effects of these typhoons caused considerable damages to the way and structures, traffic was suspended only once when a landslide occurred at Mile 54 after passing of Typhoon 'Dot' in October. Repairs to typhoon damages carried out were as follows:

(a) Construction of a mass concrete retaining wall to repair the slip

near Bridge No. 6.

(b) Removal of silt from the turntable pit inside Locomotive Yard

amounting to 270 cubic yards.

(c) Repairs to 1,600 sq. yards of the seawall between Mile 9 and

Mile 13.

(d) Repairs to 1,200 sq. yards of the asphalt felt roofing over the goods shed at Kowloon Terminus and over the staff quarters at Yau Ma Tei and Sha Tin.

(e) Repairs to 400 linear yards of fence at the Locomotive Yards

and at Tai Po Market Station.

STAFF WELFARE

54. The earned leave granted to officers during the year for a total staff of 642 amounted to:

4,833 days vacation leave

6,424 days casual leave

Total sick leave for the year for all kinds of sickness on full and half pay amounted to 1,717 days and a further 178 days no-pay leave was granted. Maternity leave totalling 89 days was also approved.

55. Railway Club. The Railway Club, run purely on subscriptions from railway staff, continued to flourish. In March 1965, there were 397 members.

56. 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.

57. 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.

58. Education. During the year under review, the Railway Club School continued to function successfully with 280 places in seven classes of 40 each with the elimination of a Preparatory Class for Junior 1 which was formed in September, 1963 for trial purposes, and closed in August, 1964 in compliance with the new education policy that no previous schooling should be required for children to enter class Junior 1. There were no changes in the teaching staff whose enthusiasm contrib- uted in no small measure to the success of the School. The pupils' attendance was good with an average of 98.7% and their progress in studies was very satisfactory. In the Secondary School Entrance Exam- ination held by the Education Department, the record of 100% passes was maintained. All the twenty-four candidates who were permitted to sit for the 1964 Examination passed every subject required in the Examination.

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

12
