East Rail Services not affected by Engineering Train incident
An engineering wagon, while performing track maintenance service, ran through a point at Hung Hom Freight Yard early this morning at 2.43am. Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) immediately arranged urgent repairs and the concerned engineering wagon was removed from the site. No one was injured in the incident.
Since the incident happened at the freight yard, East Rail mainline service was not affected.
KCRC is conducting an investigation into the incident.
