In the 1960s (possibly mid to end), the Railway along Baker Street linking KCR to Hongkong & Whampoa Dock Co. is no longer working. The curved tracks are still there, but before reaching Chatham Road, the tracks end (behind the car).

There are no tracks across Chatham Road, but possibly they are still in Baker Street.

Built in 1937. The line was abandoned following the transfer of the depot to Ho Tung Lau in 1968. Possibly because the Chatham flyover which opened in 1969 was going to be built.

In the air view of HKmapviewer in 1963, one can clearly see the tracks across Chatham road.
