KTT (Chinese: 九廣通)) is a train set used by the MTR Corporation Limited in Hong Kong on the cross-boundary service to Guangdong route. The KTT is not the only service from Hong Kong to China, Guangdong service is also provided by the mainland Chinese railway operators.
The double-deck "KTT" trailers have lower bottom floor than the ordinary cars serving on the same pair of tracks.

Between January to May 1998 the KTT cars provided service between Hung Hom and Lo Wu stations. After the whole route was electrified, the KTT serves non-stop between Hung Hom Station and Guangzhou East railway station. Although the train model has a top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph), KTT only runs at a maximum speed of 160 km/h (99 mph). Under normal demand, KTT has seven compartments (five first-class compartments and two executive-class compartments). However, during peak season, the train sets are expanded to eight or nine compartments.
