  • A very small but extremely interesting Museum. Showing how Great Britain influenced the building of the railways in the area.  more »

  • Not much here, but it's nicely done. They've got a couple of rooms on the history of trains in HK, plus a few cars you can walk through. Pretty laid back. Probably not worth making the trip out, but worth visiting if you're in the area.
  • I like this train museum a lot. It combines the tranquility of Tai Po district, an ancient feel from the green surrounding and a historical education on train transportation. Its set up is a reminiscent of an old train station. There are old train carriages for visitors to go on board and take pictures. These train carriages are well maintained and clean! It is a photogenic place, so couples and university graduates like to have their professional photos taken there!
  • Neat and concise summary of the history of the station with a thorough documentation of the merge between KCR and MTR. Nice exhibits of old ticket box and railway engines in a very natural environment with local trees. Also very cool to be located beside the active MTR'S East Rail Line
  • Free admission. Great for train lovers and family visitors. Exhibits are well maintained and in excellent condition. Overall, a glimpse of Hong Kong's past.
  • Well-maintained exhibits, visitors can stay as long as they like. Conveniently near the market in case you need to eat or buy snacks.
