Switching, even without any freight wagons.
Freight Trains Count Down 6 Days. A pair of old EMD moving back to running shed under light rain right after their mission is finished. At the siding, few MOW wagons sit deadly.
Freight Trains Count Down 15 Days. Sure this train at platform 4 is bound for Hung Hom, but not for passengers! A typical platform shot.

A double low hood unit, also color fade, lash up.
When EMD meets Chinese DF11, I give up DF11 with no doubts ! Photo was taken just only 1 second before I got blocked by the highball DF11...
Same lash-up for the VF05 as last time I visited this location. A year after the last visit, MTR 62 no longer a surprise on the mainline. Glad that the clouds do not block the sunlight when VF05 a... (more)
