Hong Kong Railway Museum

It must be tiring enough to travel up the hill that got them here the first place, but look at the joy he has when he looks at his child. The father was hauling two huge bags and still completely engaged with his child. He shows him to all the trains and lets go of his hand periodically, and the child would waddle across the railway towards the father. 


It is so difficult for many parents to watch their children from the sideline, unable to take full control of his child’s fate. It’s a learning experience for both the child and the parent, and it’s often the most rewarding one.

My cousin kindly stopped by the Hong Kong Railway Museum so I could snap a few pictures. What I got was something way more special then I expected! Tai Wo station it is barely a 10 minute walk to the museum. The Hong Kong Railway Museum is easily accessible by foot.. About 10 minutes walk from Tai Wo station around Tai Po. It is a tiny museum that doesn’t require admission fee (Yes it’s free!) and showcases some of the KCR trains in Hong Kong from the past. There are also many exhibits and display cases. There are also guided tours I think.
