Remarks & Notes 
Operating on Hong Kong Island between Kennedy Town and Shau Kei Wan (with a branch circulating through Happy Valley, is a 3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm) narrow-gauge tram system. Hong Kong Tramways (香港電車) is one of the earliest forms of public transport in the metropolis, having opened in 1904 when the island was under British rule. HKT has used electric trams since its inauguration. It owns the world's largest operational double-decker tram fleet, and is a very rare example of a tram system that uses them exclusively. In addition to being used by commuters, the system is popular with tourists, and is one of the most environmentally friendly ways of traveling in the city. HKT car 43, seen on Bank Street (and wrapped to advertise "foodpanda"), was built in 1912 by United Electric Car Company of Preston, England. (Hong Kong, China May 30, 2016)

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)
