INTRODUCTION

The British Section of the Kowloon-Canton Railway was first

opened to traffic in 1910. Until the removal of Kowloon Station to Hung Hom in November, 1975, it ran from Tsim Sha Tsui at the southern tip of Kowloon Peninsula to Lo Wu at the border with China, a distance of 36 kilometres (22 miles). The removal of Kowloon Station reduced the distance to 33.51 kilometres (20.82 miles). The system is a single line of standard gauge 1,435 mm (4 feet 8 inches) wide with nine stations, including terminii at both ends and a passenger and goods station at Mong Kok. Work is in progress to construct a second line to Sha Tin, the first phase of a plan to double track the line from Hung Hom to Tai Po Market and eventually to Lo Wu.

2.

Since the removal of Kowloon Station to Hung Hom, the number of daily passenger trains has been increased from 18 to 20 each way, including

                                                          There is trains operating between Hung Hom and Fanling and Tai Po Market. a daily maximum of 8 freight trains each way. On Sundays and public holi- days, additional passenger trains are run to cope with the increase in passengers. On certain festivals, such as Ching Ming and Chung Yeung, when large numbers of people are expected to visit the New Territories, special trains are provided to meet the increase in demand.

3.

efore 1949, it was possible to travel unhindered from Kowloon to Canton. Since then, people travelling to and from China must change trains at Lo Wu. Freight and mail wagons, on the other hand, cross the border without transhipment, except for a change of the locomotive hauling the train. The journey time for a passenger train from Hung Hom to Lo Wu is slightly over an hour, including stops at each of the seven intermediate stations.

GENERAL SURVEY

BRAR

Apart from a drop in passengers, arising from the removal of Kowloon Station from the busy focal point of Tsim Sha Tsui to Hung Hom and possibly the economic recession, 1975/76 was a successful year for the Railway. Freight revenue earnings increased by 34%, while passenger revenue earnings, despite the drop in passengers, increased by 14 per cent. The following table gives an account of the performance :-

5.

         Freight tonnage shown above and elsewhere in this report is in metric tons. Passenger figures are based on the number of tickets sold at stations and on trains. As no charge is made for children three years old or under, the total number of passengers actually carried is greater.

6.

Imports from China, totalling 1,537,697 tons, formed 99.92% of the freight carried, an increase of 371,722 tons over the previous year's figure. Export tonnage was 786 tons, which is a negligible increase over the 1974/75 figure of 778 tons. Freight carried within the New Territories dropped slightly from 539 tons in 1974/75 to 475 tons.

7.

         The number of passengers who travelled wholly within the Hong Kong Section was 11,868,132, compared with 12,255,513 in 1974/75. Passengers who travelled to and from China also dropped slightly from 1,645,820 last year to 1,530,112, a decrease of 7.03 per cent.

8.

         Net profit for the year reached a record of $11.74 million, twice the previous year, which was $5.6 million. The increase is attri- butable to higher passenger and freight revenue and greater income from renting shop and advertising spaces. Freight charges were increased by 33% at the beginning of the year and this was partly responsible for the sharp rise in freight revenue. Accumulated funds rose from $45.4 million last year to $60.6 million this year. The value of fixed assets at the end of the year was $40.8 million, an increase of 4.35% over last year's figure of $39.1 million.

9.

         The most important event during the year was the opening of the $150 million new Kowloon Station at Hung Hom, which was built on land reclaimed from the sea about 1 kilometre from the old terminal at Tsim Sha Tsui. The Terminal has modern facilities and a spacious booking and waiting hall large enough to accommodate more than ten thousand passengers. Facilities in the station include a restaurant, bar, mini-bank, book store, travel agency, escalators, electronic arrival and departure boards, clo sed circuit television, and a public address system for more efficient station control and better service to passengers. Construction work on the station building was completed in April, 1975, in time for Her Majesty the Queen to unveil a plaque commemorating the building of the terminal during Her visit to Hong Kong in 1975 on May 5th.

10.

         The Terminal was officially opened by His Excellency the Acting Governor, Sir Denys Roberts, K.B.E., Q.C., J.P., on 24th November, 1975 but did not start operating until the morning of Sunday 30th November, 1975 when the first passenger train pulled out of the station at 08:26 hours. The old terminal at Tsim Sha Tsui, having opened in 1916, was closed the previous day at 16:00 hours after the 14:55 hours passenger train left for Lo Wu and the arrival of the 14:25 hours train from Lo Wu at 15:48 hours to the sounds of the tune Auld Lang Syne over the public address system.

21

11.

      The new Terminal, although providing the Railway with more modern facilities, costs considerably more to operate and maintain than the old one. In addition, the podium and platforms require more lighting and electricity consumption is higher. Unlike the old terminal it also includes

a bus interchange and a multi-storey car park.

12.

Maximum use was made of available space in the Terminal to earn revenue to offset the higher operating cost. Apart from renting out shop and advertising spaces, the southern concourse, which was seldom used except during festivals when passenger traffic was particularly heavy, was leased out on occasions for exhibitions, starting from the beginning of 1976 at a daily rent of $1,000.

13.

-

Coincident with the removal of the terminal, the daily number of passenger trains was increased from 18 to 20 each way and the journey time of trains extended by 3 minutes to give the smaller locomotives the opportunity to achieve punctual operation. As a result, the overall punctuality of trains was improved with over 80% arriving at destination within 5 minutes of the scheduled time. With the employment of train controllers, the situation will improve further and is expected to exceed 90%‰

14.

        The one ton brass bell that was once installed in the clock tower of the old terminal was removed to the new terminal and placed in the concourse for public viewing on 30th January, 1976, which was the eve of the lunar year of the dragon. This auspicious day was specially chosen to symbolize the departure of the old and the coming of the new terminal.

15.

      In order to cope with the future level of passenger traffic using the new terminal as the population of Sha Tin new town increases, the Sha Tin race course opens and double tracking is complete, an order was placed during the year for the purchase of six power operated ticket printing and

The higher issuing rate of these machines will reduce considerably the waiting time in buying tickets at peak travelling periods and on holidays when passenger traffic is particularly heavy.

16.

Work on double tracking the line from Hung Hom to Sha Tin

It will continued during the year and is expected to be completed in 1977. not, however, be fully operational until colour light signalling has been installed in 1978.

17.

      The whole of the line, with the exception of the section between University and Tai Po Kau Stations and at Kowloon Station, is equipped with a mechanically operated signalling system, which is inadequate for the high train frequency now operated. When train operation is increased with the introduction of double tracking, the existing signalling system will not meet the traffic needs and Government has approved the installation of a colour light signalling system compatible with the double tracking of

3

the line.

Initially, this would serve only the section between Hung Hom and Sha Tin and be linked to the existing colour light system installed at Kowloon Station. As the double track project extends to Lo Wu, the whole line, including any branch lines envisaged for the future, would be signalled by this system, which, apart from being more efficient, would require less manpower to operate and allow train movements to be controlled from one central point, the Train Control Centre at Hung Hom, instead of the present fragmentary control exercised by individual stations along the line.

18.

         Preliminary work on the construction of a Marshalling Yard at Lo u was started during the year. Barring unforeseen delays the project is expected to be completed in early 1978, at which time freight trains, currently marshalled in the Chinese Section, would be marshalled in the new yard.

19.

         Construction of freight sidings at Fo Tan for unloading diesel oil and dry goods from China also started during the year and was expected to be completed in early 1977. Since China began exporting diesel oil to Hong Kong in August, 1974, owing to the absence of a suitable yard for unloading the oil, the siding along the waterfront of the Goods Yard of Kowloon Station has been used for unloading into barges, pending the construction of the siding at Fo Tan. When completed this siding would be used primarily for unloading oil, the import of which has risen consi- derably. In 1974/75, the revenue derived from the transportation of this fuel was around one million dollars, but this has risen to three million dollars in 1975/76. In addition to oil unloading the siding will also

be used for dry goods.

20.

The Ho Man Tin Siding, which was formerly part of the line to Tsim Sha Tsui, was brought into use for unloading livestock at the beginning of 1976. Much of the livestock from China, which previously were unloaded at Mong Kok Station are now unloaded here. The addition of the siding helped to increase the livestock imported in Hong Kong by rail. An expansion of the sidings will take place with the addition of

Farther tracks during 1976 PERLIC

21.

        To cope with the increasing volume of freight from China, two additional locomotives were ordered from the United States to join the existing fleet of ten. They are expected to arrive in early 1977 and will be designed for multiple unit operation and fast starting. Unlike the smaller locomotives for which a spare bogie had been provided, the heavier locomotives are occasionally idle in the workshops when attention was necessary to one of the bogies. To enable the locomotive to remain in service while the defective bogie was being repaired, authority was sought for the purchase of a spare bogie. Two spare bogies for carriages were similarly sought to enable carriages with a defective bogie to remain in service while the defective bogie was repaired.

22.

An order was placed during the year for the purchase of a wheel lathe to replace the existing one which had been in service for over 25

years.

23.

In order to reduce overcrowding on trains during the peak period 14 pre-war coaches that had been withdrawn from the fleet were returned to service after being refurbished. These coaches were used for running special trains at peak periods on weekdays and for lengthening trains on public holidays when overcrowding on trains is most severe.

24.

A contract was let towards the end of the year for the installa- tion of air-conditioning on four first-class coaches. The work is expected to be completed in December, 1976. If there is sufficient demand for this service, more coaches will be air-conditioned in future. A supplementary fare of $1 will be charged for any distance.

25.

Other projects under review include the remodelling of Mong Kok and Sha Tin Stations, the building of a loop line to the proposed new race course at Sha Tin and improvements to Sheung Shui Station including the construction of a loop line for trains to pass one another.

26.

Further planning activity was carried out during the year on the following projects which form part of a $1,389.90 million investment programme for K. C.R. :-

The latter option would mean additional waiting time for a ferry from Hung Hom to Central, and a long walk from the Kowloon Railway Station to the ferry pier. With the line to Tsim Sha Tsui, passengers destined for Central would be able to cross the harbour by the Star Ferry's Tsim Sha Tsui to Central service which is about 8 minutes shorter in travelling time than the Hung Hom to Central route or by trains on the Modified Initial System of the Mass Transit Railway Corporation.

28.

An investment programme and strategy papers on the passenger, freight, and personnel functions drawn up the previous year to show the planned expansion of K.C.R. were updated and incorporated into a Corporate Plan. The plan shows the likely trend in freight and passenger demands on the railway in the next decade and describes the expansion needed to cope with the demands. It deals with the short, medium, and long term development needs of the railway.

29.

A start was made during the year on a revision of the existing Staff Rule Book which had remained virtually unchanged since last revised in 1946. When completed, the Book will consist of two volumes, one on

To General Railway Rules and the other on Operating Railway Rules. facilitate future amendments, the book will be printed in loose leaf form, bound in plastic covers and of a size which will enable it to be carried in a breast pocket for the benefit of outdoor staff who might need to refer to it in the course of their duty.

30.

The Railway continued to take part in discussions on the Comprehensive Transport Study which was set up to report on the future transport requirements of Hong Kong. The efforts made in the previous year to improve communications with and facilities for the public continued. As part of this programme, trials were carried out with a chemical toilet for installation on coaches. If successful, consideration will be given to installing toilets in more coaches. Investigation proceeded with the object of developing a Public Address System on trains which would be sponsored by advertising.

31.

The management information and quarterly financial forecasting systems introduced in the previous year were maintained to monitor trends but will require further refinement to improve their effectiveness and facilitate greater personal accountability.

Q

32.

Apart from the passage of typhoon Elsie over Hong Kong on 14th October, 1975 there was no major disruption to train movement during the year. To enable a speeder resumption of train service after the passage of a typhoon, a new procedure was introduced for patrolling the line after the suspension of traffic as a result of the hoisting of No. 8 or

33.

       Traffic earnings increased by $6,690,885 (23.32%) in comparison with the previous year. Recent trends are shown below :-

1974/75 $28,688,809

1975/76 $35,379,694

34.

Passenger Traffic Local passenger journeys decreased by 3.16% and international journeys by 7.03%. In the case of the former, the decrease could have been attributed to the new location of the Kowloon Terminal, the increase of fares, exceptionally wet weather and the effect of the economic recession in Hong Kong. The latter is given credibility due to the reduction in the number of passengers visiting relatives and friends in China.

35.

On Ching Ming Festival Day, 5th April, 1975 and Chung Yeung Festival Day, 13th October, 1975, an additional 28 and 25 special trains were operated respectively to facilitate visits to the cemeteries at Wo Hop Shak and Sandy Ridge, carrying a total of 146,060 passengers.

36.

On 14th June, 1975, the Dragon Boat Festival, 16 special trains, in addition to the normal service, carrying 41,681 passengers were run to and from the New Territories to enable the passengers to see the Dragon Boat Races held at Tai Po (Yuen Chow Tsai).

37.

       On 21st and 22nd September, 1975 the Mid-Autumn Festival Public Holidays, the daily services were supplemented by 16 special trains each day and 54,250 and 39,441 passengers were carried respectively.

38.

On 2nd February, 1976, the third day in the First Moon of the lunar calendar, which was the peak for railway travel during the Chinese New Year period, 89,366 passengers were conveyed to all stations.

       On 29th November, 1975, the old Kowloon Railway Station was closed at 16:00 hours and on the following day, the first train departed from the new Kowloon Railway Station at 08:26 hours. A new time-table with 20 trains in each direction was introduced.

42.

      On 30th January, 1976, the Secretary for the Environment, Hon. J.J. Robson, C.B.E., J. P. and Mrs. Robson unveiled the bell from the old Tsim Sha Tsui station clock-tower to public view in the main concourse of the new Kowloon Railway Station where it is to remain as a focal point for people to meet as well as a reminder of the old terminus.

        From 2nd July, 1975 to 29th August, 1975 (except Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays) special half-fare student tickets were issued for train journeys between the old Kowloon Terminal and Mong Kok to New Territories stations. Altogether 19,652 tickets were sold compared with 13,006 the previous year.

47.

Freight Traffic The increase in freight revenue is largely attributed to the increase in diesel oil offsetting the decrease in other items of general cargoes. As there are no handling charges for diesel oil, it resulted in a decrease in handling charges of 32% in comparison with previous year in spite of the increase in traffic revenue. tive figures are

   The number of injuries and fatalities continues to give cause for concern and consideration is being given to fencing extensive sections of the railway. Power operated doors on carriages would be a significant contributor to improved safety but can only be satisfactorily introduced with electrification. In the meantime the introduction of a public address system in coaches should help the Guard give guidance to passengers who expose themselves to danger.

        Operating expenditure increased by 6.4% from $21,899,558 to $23,298,218 due mainly to the introduction of additional passenger services, the rise in the cost of materials and the higher cost of maintaining the new terminal at Hung Hom. The gross operating profit, however, improved from $6,979,957 to $12,221,977 whilst the net profit was $11,740,288 compared with $5,595,138 in the previous year. Accumulated Funds, exclu- ding interest, increased to $60,606,127 at the end of the year. The percentage of net profit to gross revenue was 30.37 compared with 18.2 in 1974/75.

60.

The larger net profit is chiefly attributable to :

(a) the increased imports from China, especially of diesel

oil, and an upward revision of freight charges by 33% with effect from 1st April, 1975.

higher revenue from passenger services reflects the impact of the increased fares and the operation of 40 new coaches, (both introduced on 4th November, 1974) for a full year compared with five months in the preceding year. fares are approximately 35% higher than the old ones which had remained unchanged since 1947.

As the

Following the re-construction of the Railway accounts in the year ended 31st March, 1970, the Reserve Fund from Plant and Rolling Stock appeared as depreciation in the subsequent annual accounts. amount provided for the replacement of 11 coaches was excessive, there was a surplus of $3,477,156 when this rolling stock was disposed of in 1975/76. It was considered inappropriate to credit this over-provision to the Profit & Loss Account and it was, therefore, brought directly to the Balance Sheet as "Replacement provision no longer required".

62.

In order to improve management attention to the differing characteristics of the passenger, freight and other businesses a Business Account has been prepared and is shown as Appendix, TV. The basis of the Account is to identify costs which are joint for both the freight and passenger services and therefore incapable of specific allocation to either and, after showing those costs which can be specifically associated with the two services, to show their individual contribution to the joint costs.

63.

      It will be seen from this appendix that both the passenger and freight businesses make a contribution to the joint costs of $5.4 and $16 million respectively and that these, together with the income from other businesses, exceed the cost of joint activities by $11.74 million.

64.

This analysis assists in transferring attention from a charging policy based solely upon costs to one also orientated towards market considerations.

LI

65.

There needs to be an improvement in the control of expenditure incurred in project implementation and it is hoped that the appointment of a Project Manager will make a significant contribution towards this situation.

66.

     Apart from the improvements to Lo u Station ($313,900) and the installation of cables and telephones ($472,400) there was no significant increase in fixed assets.

67.

The accounts and supporting data are published in Appendices I to VII in this report.

MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING

58.

         All locomotives, rolling stock, electrical and mechanical equipment, machinery and plant were maintained to a good standard during the year.

Eleven pre-war passenger carriages, which were introduced into service around 1910 and beyond economical repair were scrapped. Another 14 pre-war carriages, after refurbishing, were introduced into service again. A further three pre-war passenger carriages were reconditioned and converted to departmental coaches for use by civil engineering and workshops personnel when working away from their base. Air conditioning of four first class carriages was started during the year, the first of Modi- which is expected to be ready for service in the autumn of 1976. fications were made to the alternators of the 40 Japanese Coaches delivered in 1974/75 to raise output from 70 to 95 amperes. Modification of all coaches is expected to be completed in 1976/77.

                      1976/77. The Workshops Section also played a very active part, in conjunction with other sections, in developing and implementing a number of projects.

69.

         In order to cope with increase in traffic movement arising from the opening of the new Kowloon Station, the working period of the workshop staff in this Station has been lengthened since 30th November, 1975.

baotives

70.

The availability factor of diesel ducemetives was 91.3% compared with 88.93, in the previous year, allowing better utilisa- tion by the traffic section. Maintenance cost rose from $1.223 per km. in the previous year to $1.386 per km. The increase was the result of the increased cost of spare parts due to inflation. To assist in handling the increasing quantity of freight traffic and to take over the duties of the two oldest locomotives when under extensive overhaul and rebuilding a request was made for the purchase of two locomotives and one spare locomotive bogie.

71.

        The average consumption of diesel oil was 3.52 Kg. per engine Kilometrage compared with 3.40 Kg. per engine Kilometrage in the previous year, reflecting the heavier weight of trains. The total average cost of maintenance and oil consumption per locomotive Kilometre was $3.72 compared with $3.33 in the previous year.

72.

Carriages Availability was 88.13% compared with 88.74% in the previous year and the maintenance cost per passenger coach kilometre 30.447 compared with $0.416 in 1974/75. Again the higher maintenance cost was mainly the result of domestic and international inflation.

Two spare carriage bogies were ordered from Japan, and will help improve Carriage availability.

73.

        Flant and Equipment Workshops Section was responsible for the installation of electrical parts and the subsequent maintenance of all power operated barriers installed at six level crossings during the year. As part of the Lo u improvement project, the workshops Section installed additional electric lights under the extended canopy over the platform. The stand-by generator at Kowloon Station, Tsim Sha Tsui was overhauled and will be installed in New Kowloon Station, Hung Hom in 1976.

12

74.

Work done for other Government Departments included providing the 65 ton steam crane for unloading the traverser at Hung Hom and removing redundant rail turnouts. Other work included the manufacture and modification of night deposit safes and various iron, bronze and aluminium castings.

75.

          An order was placed during the year for a new wheel lathe to replace the existing lathe which had reached the end of its useful life and was beyond economic repair. The new lathe, which has a higher turning speed, will enable wheels to be profiled in about one-eight the time of the existing lathe. As train frequency increases, wheels will wear at a higher rate and need re-profiling with increased frequency in order not to endanger the safety of trains.

76.

          Statistical statements relating to the analysis of train and locomotive running, fuel oil expenses, consumption of lubricants and the cost of repairs to locomotives, carriages and wagons will be found in

         Approval was given by the Colonial Secretariat to adopt a heavier rail section weighing 54 Kilogrammes per metre and to use pre- stressed concrete sleepers with continuously welded rails. to facilitate the change has been purchased and more, including the welding

D equipment, is on order.

78.

         It is expected to start using the heavier rails on concrete sleepers by the end on 1976. At first welding will be confined to rail of 36 metre lengths, but eventually when the track conditions are suitable the rail will be welded into longer lengths.

79.

          The increased frequency of traffic makes the time available for track maintenance during the day limited and during the night, periods for absolute possession have been reduced. This reduces the efficiency of the

To track maintenance work and the increased traffic causes heavier wear. deal with this situation authority is being sought to obtain machines to carry out track maintenance.

80.

Studies were carried out of route alignments from Tai Po to the proposed industrial estate there and to Tuen Mun via Yuen Long in order to define a railway reservation and tentative plans were made of a possible freight terminal adjacent to the container terminal at Kwai Chung.

86.

The Railway Division of the Public Works Department carried out some of the planning, design and construction work on capital projects for the railway. During the year it completed construction of the new Kowloon Station which was declared open by the Acting Governor, Sir Denys Roberts, on 24th November, 1975.

87.

During the year work started on double tracking, with the exception of the Beacon Hill Tunnel, of the line from Hung Hom to Sha Tin. Good progress has been made and the work will be completed during 1977.

88.

Expenditure during the year on Capital Works undertaken by the Railway Division amounted to approximately $34 million.

89.

        In consultation with management the Division has in hand the planning for double tracking from Sha Tin to Tai Po, including remodelling existing stations; a loop line and station to serve the new racecourse at Sha Tin; some additional works at Hung Hom and Ho Man Tin; the remodelling of Sheung Shui Station and a new station at Fo Tan.

Notes on the Operating and Profit & Loss Accounts

         The Kowloon-Canton Railway is owned by the Hong Kong Government whose policy is to avoid cash transactions between its departments. However, in order to determine profitability and reflect the action of management the Railway's annual accounts are based on commercial principles and it is necessary, therefore, to include in such accounts the market value of all services rendered to Government departments, the renting to them of railway property and the loss of revenue caused by Government action. A principal item is the considerable difference between actual income derived from the sale of tickets to students and the amount which they would have paid if normal fares were charged and is in effect a subsidy to students. The situation is the same as in the case of the bus and tramway companies which are compensated for the concessionary fares charged to students by the payment by Government.

         In order that the Railway accounts can reflect income which is part of the normal revenue of non-Government owned railways, the following notional credits were included in these accounts:

Notes on the Balance Sheet

         Capital expenditure does not include the cost of the new railway terminus in Hung Hom, which was put into service on 30th November, 1975, and the land on which it stands, and no provision has been made for compensation to the Railway for surrendering the land and buildings in Tsim Sha Tsui, pending agreement on the financial aspects of the removal of the Kowloon terminus from Tsim Sha Tsui to Hung Hom with Government.

          The nett value of Fixed Assets which were demolished following the removal of the Terminus to Hung Hom, such as staff quarters and signalling cabin at Blackheads etc. totalling $61,475 has been written off. Other items viz. the track and the signalling system at Tsim Sha Tsui, the nett book value of which was at 31.3.76 amounted to $625,260 and $949,170 respectively, were dismantled for reuse on other Sections of the Railway or for disposal by sale and are still shown as Fixed Assets. The market value of all Assets affected by the removal to Hung Hom will be taken into account in discussions with Government.

         The estimated replacement cost included in depreciation is no longer required in respect of 11 coaches which have been sold.
