My agenda today is to visit a heritage Chinese estate in the countryside. For the first time in many years, I took the train in Hong Kong.

The metro operator in Hong Kong, MTR Corporation (Mass Transit Railway) and the original railway operator, the KCRC (Kowloon-Canton Railway Corp.) merged in 2007 and kept the MTR Corp. name.

The combined MTR network now runs 218 km of tracks, 68 rail or metro stations, plus another 84 light rail stations.

The operator, publicly-listed MTR Corp. Ltd., is actually quite well-known internationally for its efficiency. Outside of Hong Kong, it also runs metro (underground) services in London, Stockholm, Beijing, Shenzhen and Melbourne.

To me it feels too much like a metro train and not a real train though. Bedankt!
