I always see these trains whenever I pass Sunny Bay. The Mickey Mouse windows are very creative. Tokyo Disneyland has the same thing but I like this one better

Crowds expected at Disneyland MTR station
Government Press Release


Mickey magic: The Disneyland Resort Line carried 9,300 passengers on its first day of operation.

The MTR Corporation will implement crowd control measures at Disneyland Resort Station this weekend as scores are expected to try out the new Disney-themed train.

Although Hong Kong Disneyland will not open until next month, the Disneyland Resort Line carried more than 9,300 passengers on its first day of operation yesterday. And passengers are expected to swell on the weekend as people take the opportunity to try the line and visit the small section of the Park Promenade now open to the public.

The MTRC said the situation will likely warrant control measures like one-way pedestrian flow systems and intermittent closure of ticket gates, should many people congregate at the station.

Passengers are reminded to listen for public announcements and notices on the MTR network for updates on the crowd flow situation.

The line has opened ahead of the theme park to support final preparations for Disney and other attractions in Penny's Bay.

The Mickey Mouse window concept is not original. Tokyo's Disneyland monorails have the same concept and it's operational.

But HK's MTR trains look more colorful and lively both the outside and inside.

Australia's Leighton units win major Hong Kong rail project
Friday August 5, 2005, 12:28 pm

SYDNEY, (AFP) - Two units of Australia's Leighton Holdings have secured a major share in a 340 million dollar (262 million US) rail project in Hong Kong, the company said.

Leighton said its Leighton Asia subsidiary would take a 130 million Australian dollar share in the joint venture project and its John Holland unit 42 million dollars.

The remainder of the contract went to joint venture partners Balfour Beatty and Kumagai Gumi, it said.

The project for the Kowloon Canton Rail Corp (KCRC) is part of the Kowloon Southern Link project linking Hong Kong's Nam Cheong station and the new East Tsim Sha Tsui station.

The joint venture's scope of work includes the construction of a new underground station in West Kowloon and twin seven-meter-diameter (23 foot) tunnels.

Leighton said the project would begin soon and was scheduled for completion by July 2009.
