MTR Light Rail System, Hongkong.
The MTR Light Rail, also known Light Rail Transit (LRT), in Hong Kong, serves the northwestern New Territories within and between Tuen Mun and Yuen Long. The system operates over 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) standard gauge track, using 750 V DC overhead power supply. It was once one of four systems that made up the KCR network in Hong Kong. The Light Rail network has been an integral part of daily life in the northwestern New Territories since 1988. The system now covers 68 stops across 36.15kms of track.
