Tracks visible.

1931 TST Star Ferry Port

Tracks leaving the Kowloon Dockyards are visible, unfortunately too many busses block the view to decide if the tracks run across the bus terminal.

A cropped photo of the above appears in 'Early Hong Kong's Kowloon Peninsula' by Cheng Po Hung. The caption reads: c. 1924. To the left are first and second-class buses operated by the Kowloon Motor Bus Company, behind which is the No. 3 bus bound for Kowloon City operated by the Kai Tack Motor Bus Company.

Turn round 180 degrees from the clock tower in the previous photo and this was the view - Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry bus terminus in Kowloon. The famous Star Ferry boats run across the harbour to Hong Kong island from behind the building behind the buses.

I don't know what buses run in Hong Kong these days but in 1981 they were all clearly British designs. Not to mention the British weather.

1953 TST Star Ferry

It looks as if the tracks to the Kowloon Wharves have been cut. Date is given as 1953, unclear if this is correct.
