GENERAL SURVEY

ONCE again the year closed with very good financial results with a nett profit of $3,673,108. It has also been one of many new records. The record figures are shown as follows:

(a) Gross railway revenue $15,266,791 was $1,978,046 more than the

record of $13,288,745 in 1964-65.

(b) Passenger revenue $7,455,399 was $297,192 more than the record

of $7,158,207 in 1950-51.

(c) Goods revenue $7,038,352 was $1,358,551 more than the record

of $5,679,801 in 1964-65.

(d) Number of passengers 9,513,395 was 629,294 more than the

record of 8,884,101 in 1964-65.

(e) Goods tonnage 895,066 was 176,730 more than the record of

718,336 in 1964-65.

        2. An important feature on this short line is the continuous increase in both the passenger and goods traffic (see Appendices XV and XVI). It is expected that both the passenger and goods traffic will continue to rise in future years. As great difficulties had already been experienced in recent years in handling such heavy traffic it is apparent that the traffic is nearing the maximum that can be carried by a single line.

3. Local passenger traffic continued to show an upward trend. The total number of local passengers carried during the year was 8,535,854, an increase of 6.89% over the previous year. The movement of pas- sengers to and from China fluctuates unpredictably and the number of these passengers carried was 911,168, an increase of 10.22% over the previous year (see Appendix XIV).

4. In the case of goods traffic 99.5% of it was imported goods from China. The imported tonnage was 890,608, an increase of 25.28% over the previous year. The exported tonnage was only 1,486 tons, an increase of 7.92%.

       5. The import of live pigs has traditionally been an important feature of incoming goods traffic. The total imported by rail during the year was 1,013,500 head, the highest figure ever recorded and 10,326 more than the record of 1,003,174 in 1964-65.

1

6. A new station building with improved booking and waiting facilities was erected at Lo Wu, the border station, and was opened for the use of the public on 22nd March, 1966.

7. For the period from 7th August to 31st October, 1965, the Chinese Section did not allow any passenger 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.

8. The Prime Minister of Uganda, Dr. A. M. OBOTE, and his party travelled by a Chinese special train from Kowloon to China on 11th July, 1965 and returned to Hong Kong by the same special train on 16th July, 1965.

9. The Hon. Colonial Secretary, Mr. M. D. Irving Gass, C.M.G., J.P. visited the Railway on 18th January, 1966.

TRAFFIC

10. Traffic earnings for the year under review amounted to $14,493,751 showing an increase of 15.43% over the amount of the previous year. Comparative figures are as shown below:

1965-66 $14,493,751

1964-65 $12,556,657

Increase

$1,937,094 (15.43%)

11. Passenger Traffic. Local and non-local passenger journeys increased by 6.89% and 10.22% respectively. The 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 and also to the increase of foreign business- men and tourists to China.

12. On Ching Ming Festival Day, 5th April, 1965 and on the adjacent Sunday, 4th April, 1965, 29 and 25 special trains respectively in addition to the daily normal service of 34 trains were run to facilitate the passengers visiting the cemeteries at Wo Hop Shek and Sandy Ridge. On these two days, 85,310 and 56,733 passengers respec- tively were carried.

13. On Dragon Boat Festival Day, 4th June, 1965, 26 special trains in addition to the normal service were run to and from the New Territories to convey the spectators to the Dragon Boat Races held at Yuen Chow Tsai in Tai Po. On that day 57,834 passengers were carried.

2

        14. On Mid-Autumn Festival Day, 10th September, 1965, 14 special trains for Tai Po Market and 2 special trains for Fanling were added to the normal train service for the picnickers to spend their holidays in the New Territories. On that day 45,848 passengers were conveyed to all stations.

15. On Chung Yeung Festival Day, 3rd October, 1965, 26 special trains were run to Wo Hop Shek in addition to the normal train. service for the convenience of the grave visitors. On that day 67,768 passengers were carried.

16. On 23rd January, 1966, the Third Day in the First Moon of the lunar calendar, which was the peak for railway travel during the Chinese New Year period, a total of 89,958 passengers were conveyed to all stations.

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

       18. Goods Traffic. Goods traffic improved over the previous year by 176,730 metric tons yielding an additional $861,032 in revenue. This represented increases of 24.60% in weight and 22.49% in revenue. The overall receipts on handling charges also increased by $405,085 or 42.26%.

22. During the year under review, notable commodities to China by rail were 710 metric tons of personal effects, 115 metric tons of diplomatic belongings, 45 metric tons of sewing mechines and 46 metric tons of newspapers.

23. Some 5,400 metric tons of mail and mail packets compared with some 5,336 metric tons in the preceding year were conveyed by rail to China for the Post Office. This amount was distributed fairly evenly over the whole period under review.

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

25. Operation. Train punctuality for the year under review was still unsatisfactory although there was a considerable improvement over that of last year. This poor result was mainly due to the inevitable accumula- tive effect of train crossing delays in our single line operations as a result of the sharp increase in both passenger and goods traffic in the recent years. A revised new timetable is being prepared to cope with the increased traffic and the train punctuality will be satisfactory after the introduction of this new timetable.

   29. The Gross Operating Profit for the year was $6,087,588 repre- senting an increase of 8.91% as compared with the figure of $5,589,323 in the previous year. This was due to an increase in Gross Operating Receipts Passenger Traffic Receipts increasing by 8.41% i.e., from $6,876,856 in 1964-65 to $7,455,399 in 1965-66 and Goods Traffic Receipts increasing by 23.92% i.e., from $5,679,801 in 1964-65 to $7,038,352 in 1965-66. The Nett Profit transferred to the Appropriation Account at $3,673,108 was $658,069 higher than the figure of $3,015,039 for the previous year.

   30. The major increases in Fixed Assets include expenditure of $146,497 for widening of embankment (Land and Formation), $72,211 for construction of an open concrete drainage channel (Line Protection), and $423,202 for construction of a new station at Lo Wu ($301,899 less $45,000 being estimated value of old Lo Wu Station demolished), new shelters at Fanling Station ($109,631) and a new footbridge at Tai Po Market Station ($56,672).

31. The asset 'Land and Formation' stands in the Balance Sheet at a book value of $8,146,205 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.

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

MECHANICAL WORKSHOPS

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

6

        34. Locomotives. Forty 5,000 mile inspections, thirty 10,000 mile inspections, twelve 30,000 mile inspections and two 480,000 mile inspec- tions were performed on the eight diesel electric locomotives. The engine lower main bearings and their thrust collars of locomotives Nos. 51 and 54 were renewed. The cylinder liners of locomotive No. 56 and piston rings of locomotive No. 57 were renewed. Twelve new injectors were fitted to locomotive No. 52. Four locomotives had their wheels renewed and two others had their wheels turned. A total of six locomotives had their traction motors completely overhauled.

        35. The availability factor of the diesel electric locomotives for the year was 87.23%, showing an increase of 1.14% over the previous year. Higher availability of locomotives was successfully achieved in coping with the growing volume of goods traffic in spite of the large amount of repair work done during the year. This was due to the good efforts made by the workshop staff to improve planning and control of work schedules so that the least time was taken for maintenance and repair of locomotives and the best overall result of operation could be obtained.

36. The maintenance cost of the diesel electric locomotives rose from $0.428 to $0.443 per km. The rise was attributable to the increased labour wages during the period under review.

37. Carriages and Wagons. All carriages and wagons were main- tained in good order. The following rolling stock were overhauled and painted:

(a) Carriages Nos. 107, 109, 110, 112, 115, 201, 301, 303, 307, 308,

309, 312, 313, 320, 321, 322, 323, 330, 340, 342, 347 and 350.

(b) Thirty five wagons of various types.

38. Electrical Work. All electric lighting, power signals and other electrical equipment in the railway were maintained to a good standard. In order to facilitate night unloading of goods, nine 400 watt mercury discharge lamps were erected at Blackhead Goods Yard. One additional mercury discharge lamp was installed at Fanling Station and 4 yard lights were erected in the staff quarters at Luen Wan Street during the year.

39. 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 105 brass castings, 132 iron castings, 32 aluminium castings, 55 antimonial lead castings, 3 phosphor bronze castings, 200 portable traffic signs, 6 traffic pagodas, 3 hot water

7

cylinders, 320 metal number plates, 20 mild steel hammers, 1 movable loading ram and the repair of 338 items of hospital equipment.

40.

Statistics

(a) The average consumption of diesel oil was 3.31 kgs. per engine km. compared with 3.30 kgs. per engine km. for the previous

year.

(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 VI to IX while classification of rolling stock are at Appendices X to XIII.

WAY AND STRUCTURES

41. Maintenance. Way and structures were maintained to a good standard during the year.

42. Track. As in the previous year, corrosive discharge from the cold storage wagons of the Chinese Section placed additional burden of work on the permanent way staff. Although improvements to these wagons were attempted by the Chinese Section, these have not proved entirely satisfactory. Up to the end of the year under review discussions with the Chinese Section continued with a view to 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 fishplates were carefully inspected and greased. Some 1,142 lengths of 95-lb. rails, 2,350 cubic yards of stone ballast and 9,300 sleepers were renewed during the year.

(b) Badly corroded track components were renewed wherever neces- sary. During the year, some 1,180 pairs of fishplates, 6,200 fish- bolts and 39,300 dogspikes were replaced.

(c) For the purpose of restoring the rails to their proper inclination, the rail seats in the sleepers of the main line curves at Miles 14, 5 and 10 and in the relief line near Mile were adjusted by adzing. The gauge and superelevation of these curves and also the curves at Miles 3, 34, 82, 104 and 143 were also adjusted. (d) The expansion gaps of the rail joints in the curves at Miles 51, and 20 and inside Beacon Hill Tunnel were adjusted with the addition of 1,020 anchors.

8

(e) Five turnouts were renewed in Hung Hom Yard, at Tai Po

Station and in Wo Hop Shek Siding.

43. Embankment and Cutting. Some 1,600 square yards of sea wall at Mile 13 were repaired. Some 60 cubic yards of loose boulders were removed from the cutting at Mile 10 as a precautionary measure against rock fall.

44. Signalling. The gantries, brackets, and arms of all signals along the line and point indicators of all the points were overhauled and repainted.

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

46. Bridges

(a) Major overhaul was done to the steel bridges Nos. 9, 10, 12, 27, 28, 30 and 31. All badly corroded steel members were either renewed or strengthened. In all, some 9,400 rivets were renewed. All the bridges were repainted.

(b) All badly-worn sleepers on Bridges, Nos. 24, 27, 28, 29, 30 and

31 were renewed.

(c) Bridges Nos. 4, 5, 6, 7, 32, 33 and 36 were inspected and

repainted.

47. Road Level Crossings

(a) The road level crossing at Mile 9 was widened preparatory to the widening of the motor road. All the decking timber, fasten- ings, sleepers and ballast were renewed.

(b) All the timber decking, fastenings, sleepers and ballast of the level crossings at Mile 13 and at Sheung Shui were renewed. (c) The railway tracks in all the level crossings, with exception of

the one at Mile 19 were overhauled and packed.

(d) All the crossing barriers were repainted with reflective paints. 48. Station Yards and Platforms

(a) The passenger platform at Wo Hop Shek Station was lengthened by 200 feet. Some 530 linear yards of the existing platform and yard were re-surfaced with bituminous wearing course.

(b) At Fanling Station, 1,920 square yards of the station yard were re-surfaced with a bituminous wearing course and 1,270 square yards of the station platform were re-surfaced with cement

concrete.

9

(c) At Yau Ma Tei Station, all the timber garden seats on the station platform were replaced by 102 concrete benches with terrazzo finish.

49. Station Buildings. The station building at Kowloon Terminus, Yau Ma Tei and Sha Tin were overhauled and re-decorated.

   50. Staff Quarters. Major overhauls and redecoration work were done to the staff quarters for Hung Hom Stores, engine crews' quarters, Workshops foremen's quarters and nissen hut quarters for Workshops staff at Hung Hom; Traffic Quarters at Blackheads, Yau Ma Tei and Sha Tin; Headmen's Quarters at Sha Tin, Tai Po Kau and Ma Liu Shui.

51. New Works and Improvements

(a) To improve the movement of passenger traffic during train cross- ings at Tai Po Market Station, an overhead bridge with a span of 621 feet was constructed. Some 145 square yards of the queue- ing and booking area in front of the station building were built over with insulated roofing on steel trusses.

(b) The old Lo Wu station building, which was a steel shed, was completely demolished and replaced by a reinforced concrete building with improved booking facilities and large waiting halls. The new building covers an area of 4,300 square feet with a canopy of 1,200 square feet extending over the passenger plat- form. The aluminium arch roofing over the border bridge was also extended by 32 feet so as to provide a covered footpath all the way from the Chinese border to our Immigration Office. (c) To facilitate handling of goods and improve the flow of vehicular traffic at Blackheads Yards, 12,340 square yards of cement con- crete roads, loading and turning areas were constructed.

(d) Four additional waiting shelters, covering a total area of 6,620 square feet were constructed at Fanling Station. The existing waiting shelter was also extended to cover an area of 2,040 square feet.

(e) To improve the drainage system along the track from Mile 3 to Mile 3, cement concrete open channels, totalling 740 yards in length were constructed.

(f) Some 25,600 cubic yards of earth, taken from sites worked by the Development Office, Public Works Department, were dumped along the embankment from Mile 5 to Mile 7 to widen the

10

formation so that it could accommodate a double line to Sha Tin. Nine culverts were also extended to prepare for the widening when it becomes necessary.

       52. Railway Land. The following areas of railway land were let out on permits for various purposes:
