I Spy (TV Series) - Robert Culp (1965) - Sheung Shui KCR Station, Sheung Shui

Well, a few posts ago we saw some nice shots taken in and around the KCR Terminus in Tsim Sha Tsui, this time we are going all the way up to the opposite end of the same track (and actually, it was still a single track at the time) to the very last stop HK-side at Sheung Shui. It's a fleeting glimpse but an interesting one.

Suffice to say everything has changed and not only the station but the whole town (Sheung Shui was a small market place formerly known as Shek Wu Hui) has been merged with the neighbouring area of Fanling to become Sheung Shui/Fanling New Town (Fanling itself was also a former market town, called Luen Wo Hui, run by a rival clan).

The only constant here now can be seen in the distant background and that is the hill known as Tai Shek Mo. Readers of this blog (and my other one) will probably recognise that name because it is the same hill (albeit from a different angle) that features in the background of the Bruce Lee V Sammo Hung fight in Enter The Dragon.

Incidentally, if you ever make it to the Railway Museum in Tai Po (an interesting post on that coming up next), you'll see that the above diesel engine's counterpart, numbered #51, is still on display there.
