Vanished and Current Tramlines 今昔路軌

Standard

The partial redundant tracks outside the depot and along the main lane are still visible today.

Back to the Past…

今天在電車廠外及主線旁仍然可以見到部分廢棄路軌的痕跡。讓我帶大家回到過去…

The vanished junction of Whitty Street (Shek Tong Tsui) Loop in the late 1990s. Trams go straight when bound to Kennedy Town same as today, and enter the junction laid to the north, either go to the depot or sit for the next route by passing the loop under the Hill Road Flyover. (Lindsaybridge)

九十年代初的屈地街 (石塘咀) 分段路軌,往堅尼地城的電車跟現在一樣直走,左段是電車入廠或繞過山道橋底轉往下一目的地。

Tram 120 departing from the depot, eastbound to North Point but the side screen was still displayed in “Whitty Street”. Perhaps the driver has to modify while stopping at the traffic light ahead!

120號從車廠出發往北角,但側牌仍然顯示屈地街。司機在前面的燈位停下時需要更正了。

Tram 115 is just finished refurbishment with plain silver body, passed by the depot-entering section and pending for the next route to North Point. (Lindsaybridge)

完成翻新的115號帶著銀色車身駛經入廠路段,準備下一站往北角。

The current Whitty Street Loop for depot-entering and departing is likely the most complicated junction. Tram 168 westbound to Kennedy Town whilst tram 120 to Happy Valley.

今日供電車入廠和出廠的屈地街夾口位相信是最複雜的路段了。圖中168號和120號分別西行往堅尼地城和東行往跑馬地。

Tram 31 ready to turn into the loop of Shek Tong Tsui. Another picture shows tram 200 rush back to the depot at 7, whilst tram 8 starts its first route to Happy Valley.

上圖的31號準備轉入石塘咀總站,另一張難得看見200號早上駛回車廠,旁邊的8號第一程往跑馬地。

Tram 172 finished trial run, waiting at the another junction back to the depot at the end of Kennedy Town Praya.

172號完成試車,在堅尼地城海旁盡頭前的另一個夾口等候入廠。
