East Rail train compartment’s temperature setting
 
To provide passengers with a comfortable journey and to conserve energy, Kolwoon-Canton Railway Corporation pre-sets the saloon temperature of East Rail trains at 24 degree Celsius. Temperature sensors are also installed in the air-conditioning system to monitor saloon temperature. The train temperature will be adjusted automatically if it deviates from the preset temperature.
With respect to the places with low indoor temperature as listed in the press release issued by Friends of the Earth today, KCRC has immediately started an investigation into the case of low saloon temperature as recorded in an East Rail train.
