MTR Admiralty 4 Posted January 18, 2009 Share #1 Posted January 18, 2009 Alright, I'm going to show to you guys the MTR (Mass Transit Railway) system in Hong Kong. The video included reflects the pre-merger system, so the map inside shows only the Kwun Tong Line, the Tsuen Wan Line, the Island Line, the Tung Chung Line, the Airport Express Line, the Tseung Kwan O Line and the Disneyland Resort Line. This song, yes a song, uses many MTR station names and would show the station in real life as the name is mentioned. The song is sung by Steve James, a RTHK presenter, and is sung to the tune of "Do-Re-Mi, Sound of Music". James takes us all on a circuitous route, beginning with Tsuen Wan in the New Territories, eventually winding up in Prince Edward (Road). How he does that? Let's see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_h8hHueE0vM&feature=related The route is: Tsuen Wan Line: From Tsuen Wan to Prince Edward or (Tai Chi Do, as how we would normally say "Prince Edward Road" in Cantonese) Interchange to the Kwun Tong Line Kwun Tong Line: From Prince Edward to Yau Tong Interchange to the Tseung Kwan O Line Tseung Kwan O Line: From Yau Tong to Quarry Bay Interchange to the Island Line Island Line: From Quarry Bay to Central, but James gives himself a choice between Sheung Wan (the terminal station of the Island Line) and a switch to the Tsuen Wan Line for Tsim Sha Tsui Interchange to Tsuen Wan Line Tsuen Wan Line: Central to Prince Edward This journey is only a fraction of the current system, as it completely avoids the Tung Chung Line (one of the best MTR lines, IMO), the Disneyland Resort Line and of course, the famous Airport Express line. Enjoy! (Of course, you will pass by Admiralty, the origin of my handle) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
