Sha Tau Kok branch railway – Absorbing 1986 account by RJ Phillips

Tymon Mellor has sent a long and detailed account of  the Fanling – Sha Tau Kok branch railway which operated from 1911 to 1928. HF adds: The report, written by RJ Phillips, and published in 1986 (?), obviously required a tremendous amount of research and perseverance and contains a large amount of information plus several, sometimes rather blurry, images including maps, plans and photos. The  source of the account is the HK Records Office.
