Hongkong (November 30): After 64 years and many millions of passengers, the Tsimshatsui railway station closed down yesterday. Last train out of the terminus, which was on a non-passenger journey to Hunghom, did have one passenger on board - Mr R.E. Gregory, General Manager of the Kowloon-Canton Railway. After this train passed through Hunghom shortly after 4 pm, the track between Hunghom and Tsimshatsui was disconnected. The new Hunghom Station is from today the Kowloon terminus of the Kowloon-Canton Railway. The last passenger carrying train was packed with a full load of 900 passengers when it left the old terminus at 2.55 pm. Many people had come especially with their cameras to take pictures of the main station hall and the platforms and to ride on the last train. The railway's station at Tsimshatsui was built in 1916. Except for the clocktower, the station will be torn down to make way for the Urban Council's Cultural Complex. The 146-ft clocktower will continue to dominate the shoreline at the tip of Kowloon Peninsula. Meanwhile, the Kowloon-Canton Railway has announced that passengers travelling on the first train from the new Kowloon Station today, which will leave at 8.26 am, will not be required to surrender their tickets at the stations where they alight, but may retain them as momentos of the first journey made from the new terminal.
