Everyone who has been staying in Hong Kong and traveling with the MTR will notice the following sentences: “Please stand behind the yellow line. The train to Hung Hom is approaching. Please let passengers align first. Thank you for your cooperation.” Then you will hear the typical “beep beep beep beep” before the doors are closing. Sometimes the beep beep beep sound is a signal for locals to show off their running and time coordination skills. No matter how packed the MTR is, there is always someone running at the beep beep closing sounds, jumping in at the last beep and squeezing into the already crowded MTR train. This behavior belongs to Hong Kong and the MTR as well as the announcements and sounds. Although, we can’t provide you with the packed train or people squeezing in in an already fully packed MTR, we can help you out with the sounds of the MTR. All you need is a QuickTime player and you can enjoy the sounds of the MTR no matter where you are in the world. The website in only available in Chinese and –as it seems- is made by and for real train lovers. The last recordings have been added in 2005. Saying this, we conserved some of the sounds from the former KCR (Kowloon Canton Railway), which is now known as MTR East Railway and MTR West Railway. There have been several changes at the MTR such as adding new lines or changing terminal destinations. Hearing these sound recordings is like traveling back in time and bringing memories of old times alive. For all of you who have been to Hong Kong and are missing the sounds, try to check out the links below. May be you can add it to your cellphone and show your love to Hong Kong.
