Strengthened Guangzhou-Kowloon Through Train service for 100th CECF
 
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) is pleased to announce that Guangzhou-Kowloon Through Train, a direct link between Guangzhou and Hong Kong, has been appointed as the official rail for the 100th Chinese Export Commodities Fair (CECF). In order to cater for the increased demand, extra compartments will be deployed on Guangzhou-Kowloon Through Train to provide an additional 1,600 seats per day between 14 and 31 October 2006.
Passengers could purchase tickets of the extra compartments via our Tele-ticketing Hotline, e-Ticketing website and Through Train Ticketing Counter at KCR Stations or appointed ticketing agents from today onwards.
CECF will set up a special counter at the departure hall of through train at East Rail Hung Hom Station during the captioned period to distribute event brochures and registration forms for visitors. First-time visitor could fill in the registration form before attending the Fair in order to shorten the waiting time. CECF staff would station at East Rail Hung Hom Station from 14 to 15 October to answer enquiries and render assistance.
