舊尖沙嘴火車站的情懷













































































同場加映























尖沙嘴火車站幾年前重開, 但已從地面轉到地底, 與尖沙嘴地鐵站連接.  然而我對舊尖沙嘴火車站依然未能忘情, 猶記得那座以紅磚砌成的三角型建築物嗎? 在6,70年代, 火車是住在市區的香港人往"郊區"的主要交通工具.  那年頭, 去一趟沙田烏溪沙, 或者是大埔林村旅行已是一整天的行程, 同學/朋友們都相約在尖沙嘴火車站的大門口等, 人到齊後派一個代表入大堂買車票再魚貫上車.  由於火車的班次頗為疏落, 旅行的攪手要事先決定坐那一個鐘點的班車, 再訂定集合時間, 否則錯過了預定的班車時間, 大伙兒可能要呆等上一個鐘頭.  當然, 尖沙嘴火車站也是返鄉下探親的必然出發點, 但那卻是苦差, 在凌晨5,6點趕抵火車站等車往羅湖過關, 與相約同學/朋友們去旅行的心情不啻有天淵之別.


 


坊間有不少舊尖沙嘴火車站的照片在流傳, 但車站大堂內的照片則甚為罕見, 在此特別貼上兩張以供憑吊, 你對舊尖沙嘴火車站有沒有甚麼個人的故事/情懷?

  3. 未見過, 亦都未用過, 我幾歲跟父母乘火車回大陸探親, 過年已經是八十年代時的紅磡車站.
    不過母親說過, 她年輕時 (約196x), 十幾歲和她爸(我外公)去粉嶺掃墓是要一整天的, 他們當時住西營盤, 晨早五時便要過海去尖沙咀, 之後再乘柴油火車, 一入山洞, 媽媽等人便要閂窗, 因為d黑煙, 回程到家里, 天色已入黑了! 然後有一次, 當時外婆不相信要花一整天的時間, 於是拖着媽和其他子女跟着一起掃墓, 經過一整天的勞累之後, 她終於都相信, 回家是晚上六七時, 足足十二小時. 媽還說, 當年車箱的衛生情況很差, 就像多年前內地的火車般.

  9. 在33年前和同學一起在那裏買過票及坐上火車。那時我們是特意坐在貨卡上,因中間是開著大門的,我們坐在門口往外看火車經過的景物,小時候是覺得很好玩。現在想起來也覺危險。還有另一樣玩意,是放一個一毫或五仙硬幣在路軌上,讓火車壓過,扁扁的硬幣,是我們乘坐火車的紀念品。但現在那些硬幣也不知所踪,真可惜!

  10. 依稀記得早於上世紀40年代楊慕琦任港督時期已提出搬遷火車站往紅磡o由於新界發展人口北遷,與國內交通增長, 尖沙咀舊火車站不敷應用o當年每逢清明重陽或過年過節,站外就大排人龍,雨淋日晒,苦不堪言o 因此必須建設較大的紅磡火車站o 今天除了本區的東鐵線及西鐵線外,更有直通車線通往廣州,肇慶,上海,天津及北京等地,尖沙咀舊站是應付不來的o 計劃中通往國內的區域快線更要在西九龍另建新總站呢!

  13. 噢!在我記憶中的尖沙嘴火車站,從沒如此人流疏落和有秩序,我想是官方拍的照片吧!
    我仍然記得售票窗口對出的扶手木欄杆給人撫摸得光亮及溜滑(圖二)。
    最開心就是火車上販賣的美食,

  14. One thing I really like about the old train is that we have to climb up the steps (they look tall, like ladder especially for we children in the 60s) to get on board the train. Similarly when I got down the train, I remember I had to be extra careful lest that I might misplace my foot and fell into the rail. Yet that is fun (compared with the plain way of getting on board the KCR train of today). I also like the smell of the chicken legs sold by the hawkers in the train. The less than a minute duration of total darkness when the train passed through the tunnel is also good experience How I dream I could steal a kiss from a girl in the total darkness.

  18. 1940年我只有八歲,父母帶著一家七口,
    來香港逃避戰禍,當火車行駛途中,車上
    有呌賣零食及藥品,到達東莞石龍車站,
    稍候片刻,再有搭客上車,火車兩旁呌賣,
    腊腸咸旦飯,用白泥碗剩載,食後要求將
    白泥碗丟棄窗外,小販用草帽接著可再用,
    到達尖沙咀總站,爸爸先把兒女由車窗口
    逃出,再丟出行李箱,最後父母亦由窗口
    跳下來,呢 D 驚險實況,現在亦難忘!! 太長氣!!

  20. 我在一九五三年來港,第一次踏足香港的地方,就是舊尖沙咀火車站。這一輯舊照片頗能勾起童年回憶。美中不足的是尚欠一張火車站外貌的照片。

  22. I really missed the old days...........
    When I was a little girl.....travelling to NT was quite (in fact, exactly) a big event.......
    I lived in 調景嶺, no record could tell how much time spent on the trip to TST at the very first beginning)......what's in the old memory : I had to get up just right after I fall asleep. Along with my family, I climbed across the hills to Yau Tong with the lights from the heaven ( must be a starry night).....
    When I got TST Railway Station, my soul would have been brigthened up coz ppl there were all in rush & excited. This place was crowded with all kinds of people for their own reasons. According to my view, they were all honest, happy & mind-bearing human. For my own, I was going to have a wonderful tour with my family somewhere in NT.
    I still remember the smell of the fuel, the scary darkness thru the tunnels, the sweaty bodies nearby, the sunshine came thru the smoke, the running scenery that we caught by leaning our head out of the windows, the tasteful snacks we could reached when we were normally hunger for food to recharge our exhausted body..
    I loved the old station. It was once a symbol of Hong Kong! It tells the story of Hong Kong for about a century!
    Nowadays, TST peir is just another cold place to walkby...nothing for me to catch, no love to recall, no sweetness in the air to smell, no old faces to remember......
    Everything faded away beyond the shrunk harbour, troubled waters, dusty air, people with a thoughtless mind............
    where is my lovely birth place "Hong Kong"?
