The express train service between Kowloon and Canton comprised four daily trains and were given the following names:

a) 'Fei Chin' - Flying Arrow,

b) 'Fei Ying' - Flying Eagle,

c) 'Fei Lung' - Flying Dragon and

d) 'Fei Sing' - Flying Star

The express train service was halted in 1938 due to Sino-Japanese hostilities.

Interesting to see the development of the open areas adjoining Chatham Road and the KCR storage yard. I am not sure of the tented areas as yet - military or otherwise. The open and vacant grounds in between were called the Kowloon Football Grounds which I think the Kowloon Football Club did use.
