The MTR in Hong Kong is one of the heaviest used and most efficient rapid transit railway networks in the world: I have previously blogged about the signalling systems and platform operations used to achieve the short headways between trains, but what happens to trains at the end of the line?
Over the past few months my main blog at http://wongm.com/ has been a mix of different topics – with one big scoop of photo essays from Hong Kong, and the rest being whatever topics take my fancy. I have decided to split the Hong Kong related posts onto their own domain, which is what you are reading right now.
