Comments

Probably the marker should be more to the east where today's Lei Ye Mun Holiday Village is situated (its on a hill) - see 1952 map on Gwulo.

Update: After checking old maps again, I now think the marker is quite ok, possibly the station was a bit more to the north. The older maps seem sometimes to be not too correct with these details.
