The Light Rail was branded as "LRT" (abbreviation of Light Rail Transit) when it came into operation, and was later rebranded as "KCR Light Rail" when the "KCR (British Section)" was rebranded as "KCR East Rail". The logo of LRT which is in orange in colour is no longer in use. However, in Hong Kong laws, it remains "North-west Railway" over the time. (see — Instantnood 15:23 Feb 28 2005 (UTC)


Has anyone got a picture of the trains, and the tickets with the old logo? — Instantnood 16:54, May 1, 2005 (UTC)

Old duplicated article[edit]

TfD nomination of Template:Light Rail infobox[edit]

Template:Light Rail infobox has been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for Deletion page. Thank you. Slambo (Speak) 15:49, 14 September 2006 (UTC)


I have executed a merger (and redirect) from the individual Light rail station articles following the discussion at AfD. Most of the important information has been preserved. The only thing missing is the zone numbers. The table on the chinese page has a different presentation (ordered by zone), and I have not made the format common. Where the station is a KCR West Rail or East Rail station, the articles have been left alone. Ohconfucius 09:14, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Station vs. Stop[edit]

Recent move[edit]

User:Epicgenius recently moved this page from "Light Rail (Hong Kong)" to "MTR Light Rail". But MTR is not part of the proper name. Likewise, the analogous Tsuen Wan Line, Kwun Tong Line (etc) articles are not titled "MTR Tsuen Wan Line" or "MTR Kwun Tong Line" respectively. Nor is "MTR Light Rail" a WP:COMMONNAME. "Light Rail" is both the proper name and the common name in everyday parlance. Hence I think it should be moved back to either "Light Rail (Hong Kong)", or to "Light Rail (MTR)". Regards, Citobun (talk) 01:52, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

@Citobun: I think it should be moved to Light Rail (MTR), as all other MTR stations/lines/whatever (Admiralty Station (MTR), Airport Express (MTR), etc.) are disambiguated with "(MTR)" (so it shouldn't be necessary to specify it's in Hong Kong).

I prefer Admiralty Station (Hong Kong) and Airport Express (Hong Kong) for readers with no knowledge of MTR. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk · contri.) 09:23, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
I think Citobun's analysis is correct (I originally moved the article only because Category:MTR Light Rail gave a more concise title). I personally support moving this to the "(MTR)"-suffix title. While the "(Hong Kong)"-suffix title is also correct, we are disambiguating the Admiralty Station (MTR) and Airport Express (MTR) articles by system, as we do with rapid transit systems of other countries. In addition, "MTR" is a name exclusive to Hong Kong's rapid transit system; one only has to look up "MTR" to know that it's in Hong Kong. Kylo, Rey, & Finn Consortium (talk) 16:00, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────If we move Admiralty Station (MTR) to Admiralty Station (Hong Kong) and Airport Express (MTR) to Airport Express (Hong Kong), we might also have to move these articles as well:

Also, should I move back the page to the original title while this discussion is ongoing? Kylo, Rey, & Finn Consortium (talk) 16:11, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Requested move 10 June 2016[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Moved. (closed by page mover)  What's in your palette? Paine  11:31, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

MTR Light RailLight Rail (MTR) – Page name from 2007 to 2012; all page moves so far have been uncontroversial and not discussed. Per the discussion in the section above, "MTR Light Rail" is not a common name; the system is usually just called the "Light Rail".

Additionally, as with most other transit systems, "(MTR)" is the disambiguator of Wikipedia articles on the MTR's stations (e.g. Central Station (MTR); Airport Station (MTR)) and lines (e.g. Airport Express (MTR)); and not "(Hong Kong)", as this page was named from 2013 (it was moved by me, not knowing that WP:REQMOVE existed, from Hong Kong Light Rail) until this week.
