  • Many students go there to take graduation pictures, not much trains there, clean environment, not easy to reach that place if you have wheelchair, its very informative a lot about the historical railway system, 10~15 minutes away from mtr station by walking
  • Lots of history on the railway system from HK before it turned into the now MTR system. Its a nice place for pictures and its curious to know that they have made old style movies in this area related to parting couples in trains!
  • A nice place for learning more about the history of railway, but there are too many people in the weekend. Better go there on weekdays.
  • Provides an informative historical perspective on rail transportation in the region. I'm glad they've preserved these old train carriages.
  • Great place for kids to explore or an afternoon lunch. Have been several times.
