Images: These pictures are not censored for quality. What one person considers a bad or useless picture may be exactly what someone else is looking for. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Videos: These videos are very big, which is why railfanning videos are so rare on line. As long as Windows Media Player says "Connecting" it is working, even it if appears to be taking a very long time. It says "Connecting" until it has finished downloading the video. Please be patient. If you are unable to play these videos with Windows Media player, a problem which exists with some versions of Media Player and (sometimes) with Internet Explorer versions lower than 6, I strongly recommend the use of Quicktime if it is available. If you are using Linux, mplayer needs to be told that the videos have a bit depth of 16 (-bpp 16) to work.

Hong Kong
July 17, 2013 We went up to Tai Po to find the China-Hong Kong trains that run on the line through that part of Hong Kong. There is a covered pedestrian bridge with open sides a few hundred metres from the train station that provided excellent cover for the strong, driving rain. After, we headed to Tai Wo (the next station) and stumbled across the Hong Kong Railway Museum before going back to Hong Kong Island for a tram ride.
July 16, 2013 After a day exploring Hong Kong and taking the city's cable car ride, we took the train up to Tai Po and back to see what we could see.
