Programme Details

Traverse through the time tunnel as you visit the ticket booth, the tracks and coaches of vintage trains in the Museum, and relive the heart-stirring snippets of life...

A journey by train – is it a journey of romance, the beginning of a new life, or parting forever ?

The choo choo train rumbles on…
The railway in Hong Kong has seen a century of earthshaking changes.  One hundred years ago, just before the Kowloon-Canton Railway began operation, zealous supporters of the imminent revolt that was to become the earth-shaking 1911 Revolution were feverishly seeking every means to send revolutionary supplies back to the Mainland.  Forty years ago, when their relatives on the Mainland were stark poor, homecoming for the Hong Kong people meant stuffing everything they could into bulk bags and putting on layers and layers of clothing on themselves, with the intention of returning to Hong Kong with nothing but the shirt on their back.  Now, forty years later, it is the Mainlanders who flock to Hong Kong, an armada of shoppers armed with hordes of hard cash to buy up the city.

What kind of stories would take place on the train now? Come aboard! Visit once again the railroad that connected the Mainland and Hong Kong. Sit down in the carriages and recall. Feel the joys, sorrows, pulse and ardent cries of four generations across a time tunnel of a hundred years. Crowds come and go. With the fading of the rumble, cries and calls, what would linger in our ears during the temporary respite?
