KCR under consruction in 1909

For me it looks like narrow-gauge railway tracks. So it could be the Fan Ling-Sha Tau Kok Railway (see http://gwulo.com/hong-kong-railways-ropeways).

Anyone who has lived near the KCR will no doubt be familiar the overpowering smell of the regular pig trains passing by on their way to the unloading point at Homantin under the Princess Margaret Road viaduct to the tunnel. Especially if you happened to be on the platforms of the enclosed Mongkok station. Thankfully they no longer operate into the city.
