Hong Kong Railway Museum information
Lonely Planet review
Housed in the former Tai Po Market train station (built in 1913 in traditional Chinese style), this interesting museum has a narrow-gauge steam locomotive dating back to 1911 which, together with all the other valuable exhibits, charts the history of rail transport development in the territory.
You can get to the museum most easily by alighting at Tai Wo East Rail station. From there, walk south through the Tai Wo Shopping Centre and housing estate, then cross the Lam Tsuen River via Tai Wo Bridge (the small one with the Chinese roof) leading from Po Nga Rd. The museum is just southeast.
