It was a surprise to find out the Hong Kong even had a railway museum, and it was free, so it was perhaps not a surprise to find out that its rather small. Housed in a disused station building, with a brief exhibition inside on the history of railways in Hong Kong, it also has a small outside section, in which can be found the first diesel locomotive to run in Hong Kong and a narrow gauge steam locomotive that ran on a briefly operated branch line before it was closed and the locomotive shipped off to spend the rest of its (long) working life at a sugar plantation in the tropics.
It can be found a short, signposted walk from Tai Wo Station on the East Line of the MTR.
The weirdest part of the visit, had to be seeing a couple getting their wedding photos taken here, and this notice which indicates this was not an unusual occurrence. I think there is very little chance I would be able to persuade any future wife of mine that the way to get the best and most romantic wedding photos possible is to pose on track ballast….
Funny I never saw a sign like this at the NRM in York….
