Tai Po Market Railway Station - In Its brick and mortar days

Tai Po Market Railway Station, photo taken estimated prior to 1950.  I must have seen it in the early 1950s while travelling to and from Canton, but any memory of its appearance is long gone.  There are other recent photos, but I know which one to vote if invited to a contest.

Diesel locomotive 东风 0149 (DF 0149) and train.I believe that this photo shows the "second" of the two daily "intercity" trains to Guangzhou.

 My notes confirm the location as Sheung Shui (上水) station. I believe that this train was working northward.
