Time goes by, it's time to farewell DF11 locomotive on Hong Kong Intercity Through Trains. A type of Chinese locomotive which accompanies me everytime I go railfanning in the past.
Locomotive being placed there for the whole day is now a common sight. Something different this time is the locomotive parked on the outer track where there is no wagon blocking it, but still a sm... (more)
Switching, even without any freight wagons.
Fairly new painted MTR 59 sits outside Locomotive Running Shed where MTR 61 and MTR 62 just came out from. Different condition of the paint could be seen between MTR 59 and MTR 61......
Recent overhauled MTR 59 (Gerry Forsgate) was found on this track whole day, nothing to do and returned back to running shed next day. I have taken few photos of him in late morning and afternoon ... (more)
The Most Impressive lash up I have ever seen! A trio of EMD G16 locomotives with the glossy ruby in the sandwich. Look, they are moving just because they need move!
Nowhere to find EMD but only here, all sit deadly with nothing to do everyday. MTR 57 has been retired for a year and more. MTR 62 was found sitting next to her old partner for fews days and was h... (more)
Seimens ER20 MTR 8004 spends her night next to a overhead wire inspection wagon and says "Look, the Hung Hom Harbour Tunnel is always busy!"
Fresh Out Of Running Shed! The newly overhauled MTR 59 sure is the best gift after the end of freight train service! Unlike the past, I believe I can only see him in dark.
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 9 Days. In the remaining 9 days of freight trains, I visited Hung Hom Yard to take some roster shot of those beautiful EMDs. Unfortunately the switching of freight... (more)
This photo was taken just 3 days before MTR tookover KCR. Shortly all 5 Seimens ER20 were being put in storage or just for few wagons switching and night maintenance trains, untill now and will be... (more)
MTR 56 switches the mail coach for VF05. In fact, MTR 56 later runs for VF05 without other locomotives attached. Unfortunately I missed my 2nd chance to grab LHF MTR 56 in lit in my photos.
Triple locomotives for freight VF08! Never imagine the triple locomotive is now as common as or even more common than single locomotive!
Thinking back in the late summer in 2009, on a hot morning at International Mail Center, I took my first Long Hood Forward MTR 56 (also Ex-KCR 56) shot since my first railfanning in 2004.
