The new yellow stickers should have been put on the windows or under them.

Are the stickers the ones that say "Don't block the doors?" I made a similar comment about NYC's new subway ads to tell people to "Please Don't Block the Doors...You're blocking this train and the one behind it." - the authority here should have stuck it on the doors, not inside the train compartment.

AEL trains should have the exact same sound as TCL A-stock trains.

You would have thought so... but they really don't (yes I've ridden both :P):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_1oMa3pDCk

The sound of the AEL is more pronounced (as that video shows)... I think it's to do with the difference of acoustic qualities between the AEL trains (separate carriages) and the TCL trains (straight through tube), then also arrangements of seating, materials and so forth.

To be honest, the MTR has such good relations with the public, I doubt they would even need to produce these ads...

Strangely, this did not appear in the English press :

港鐵兩月5故障 運署擔心成「慣性」
http://paper.wenweipo.com [2009-10-11]

【本報訊】港鐵連續第2日發生故障,繼前日傍晚繁忙時段,將軍澳線發生信號故障後,昨晨上班繁忙時間,再有列車於佐敦站發生故障,往中環列車服務受阻逾半小時,大批上班一族被迫滯留月台或車廂,有乘客指港鐵未有及時通知公眾,安排混亂。是次已為2個多月內第5宗故障,運輸及房屋局要求港鐵提交報告,並指示機電署跟進港鐵故障是否已成慣性趨勢。

 昨晨8時40分,荃灣線一列駛往中環列車掣動系統出現問題,車長遂在油麻地站通知全車逾500名乘客下車,轉乘其他列車,並將故障列車駛回車廠,未料當列車駛經佐敦站時故障停下,10餘分鐘後才繼續開行至尖沙咀站附近管道內的避車處停泊檢查,惟受事故影響,沿線其他列車服務受阻延逾半個多小時。

掣動故障 專家指不罕見

熟悉鐵路系統的香港工程師學會前會長梁廣灝表示,列車掣動系統出現故障並不罕見,整個系統設計是當遇上故障,系統便會因安全理由而使列車停止運作,須再作調較才能啟動。他又稱,列車須儲夠風量才可讓掣動器開關數次,但今次事件未知甚麼原因使風泵未能儲足夠的風,沒有足夠風壓去開啟掣動器。

安排混亂 未及時通知公眾

期間,旺角站有數百乘客滯留月台,大部分乘客要多等候1至2班列車才能登車,上車後又要繼續苦候數分鐘,甚至近10分鐘,列車才能開行。為控制人潮,港鐵太子站更一度將大部分入閘機關閉,有到達港鐵站才知悉故障延誤的乘客批評,港鐵未有及時通知公眾,站內指示不清,安排混亂,令大批趕上班乘客感到無助及無奈。

港鐵聲明 近兩日故障無關連

港鐵發言人表示,意外涉及列車掣動系統故障,令荃灣線各個港鐵站列車服務受阻約半小時,服務在早上9時10分已恢復正常。港鐵副公司事務總經理王美琪向乘客致歉,但指前日與昨日兩宗故障起因並無關連,港鐵會認真檢討事件,調查事故原因,一周內提交報告。

對於港鐵接二連三發生故障影響乘客,運輸及房屋局局長鄭汝樺表示,機電工程署每次都有跟進事件,而是次港鐵亦有按機制向政府通報,當局十分關注這些故障問題,會密切監察是否形成一個趨勢。

立會跟進 劉健儀力倡追究

立法會鐵路事宜小組委員會主席劉健儀批評,港鐵最近頻頻發生故障,委員會可能提前開會追究。劉健儀指,港鐵會向立法會提交書面報告,她會待立法會復會後,再次要求港鐵解釋事故原因及解決方法,聽取港鐵對事件的報告及改善措施後,再作建議。

今次已為2個多月內第4宗港鐵故障(見附表)。對上一宗剛發生於前日傍晚下班繁忙時間,將軍澳線發生信號故障,往來調景嶺至寶琳及康城站列車服務受阻逾1個半小時,數以千計乘客受影響。期間港鐵需派出接駁巴士疏導乘客,但情況混亂,有乘客投訴港鐵應變措施不足,令他在車廂呆等半小時,列車才可開出。

港鐵將軍澳線故障 安排混亂
2009年10月10日
東方日報



- Tseung Kwan Line signal outage during rush hour at 6pm
- crowds were stuck at platforms
- North Point - Po Lam service delay of 1.5 minutes
- Tiu Keng Leng - Po Lam / LOHAS service stopped for several minutes
- Po Lam and LOHAS Park-bound passengers scrambled for other forms of transport
- government officials demand explanation of signal problems
- walk from Tiu Keng Leng - Hang Hau takes some 15 minutes, and MTR did not provide feeder buses
- government urged to improve alternative transport facilities as contingency for MTR service disruptions and question numerous signal problems on TKO Line


【本報訊】港鐵將軍澳線昨又在繁忙時間發生訊號故障,令列車服務受阻,大批乘客一度滯留在北角與調景嶺站月台,往寶琳及康城站的乘客被迫改乘其他交通工具。身受其害的議員狠批港鐵的安排「混帳」,要求港鐵就屢次發生訊號故障解畫。

昨晚六時許,港鐵將軍澳線發生訊號故障,來往北角至寶琳的列車服務每班次較平時延遲一點五分鐘。調景嶺至寶琳及康城之間列車服務更暫停數分鐘,使北角及調景嶺站月台人頭湧湧。
議員身受其害

立法會議員葉偉明及西貢區議員方國珊昨亦身受其害,葉指出,他本從立法會出發前往寶琳,詎料列車駛至油塘站,港鐵便作出廣播指因訊號故障要求所有乘客離開車廂,他稱:「延誤咗八分鐘,然後上另一架車,又等咗三分幾鐘,去到調景嶺站又等差不多十分鐘。」最後港鐵竟呼籲前往坑口至寶琳的乘客返回地面,自行乘搭交通工具。

葉直言,從調景嶺車站步行至坑口站需約半小時,加上缺乏交通工具途經兩地,狠批港鐵的安排「混帳」,無安排接駁巴士疏導乘客。他批評,將軍澳線已不止一次發生訊號故障,會於立法會跟進事宜,並會要求港鐵代表到會上解釋。方則建議政府加強沿線各站的配套交通工具,勿再因港鐵發生故障,而令乘客「無車返家」。港鐵發言人表示,當列車服務受阻期間,有安排接駁巴士疏導乘客。

打工仔早到變遲到
2009年10月11日
東方日報





- Tseun Wan - Central journey took an hour, with stops of 5 minutes per station
- 2nd outage in recent days
- passengers question whether inspections are adequate to prevent disruptions
- contingency plans were not properly put in place following disruption
- some passengers could not board after 10+ minute wait
- many passengers rushed already busy trains, resulting in delays in trains leaving platforms
- ironically as passengers take the MTR to avoid delays, they themselves were delayed in this outage

【本報訊】「由荃灣坐港鐵去到中環足足坐咗成個鐘頭,站站停五分鐘,又逼又熱點解港鐵周不時壞車?對需要準時返工嘅市民造成好唔方便嘛!」氣沖沖趕出閘上班的陸先生如是說,希望港鐵藉今次兩度壞車事故,徹底檢查各列車系統,免再將乘客「舞來舞去」。

將軍澳線前晚壞車,港鐵需要調派接駁巴士疏導乘客。

有乘客批評港鐵昨日在停駛事故發生後應變力不足,只懂得關掉中環線各車站部分入閘機,企圖讓乘客排隊入閘以減少月台的擠迫,可是港鐵沒有想到,站在月台等候十多分鐘仍然無法登車時,擠在月台的乘客每當列車埋站,均會盡辦法擠上車,最後弄至閘門關不上,整部列車及所有乘客又需要多等幾分鐘,但月台候車的乘客量卻在壞車期間一直沒有減少呢。

中環站大批乘客離開港鐵車站時均是加速腳步,因為他們經已遲到,乘客張小姐埋怨說,避開塞車才選搭港鐵,怎料到沒有塞車卻是壞車,昨日遲到半小時,希望公司體諒。
