The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Hong Kong appliance at night
Appliance from (I think) North Point station parked up on the street.
I find these vehicles interesting as this concept is quite unpopular and very controversial back in the UK yet appears at almost every main station in Hong Kong. Perhaps the need for height capable vehicles in Hong Kong is so great that they consider the trade off worth it. I do notice that many stations also have 50m+ TLs.
