The book examines the struggles to success, and the controversies and dilemmas of the Hong Kong railways through the political-corporate history of the MTRC and the KCRC. In many ways, this history of Hong Kong railways reflects the socio-political struggles of the city during its modernisation over the past three decades. People in this exciting city are always busy catching up with fast-changing developments. But somehow similar issues and problems keep repeating themselves. The rest of this chapter explains the relevant analytical framework and concepts adopted in this book, the book's structure and outlines the critical issues affecting Hong Kong railways. The analysis and evaluation in this book focuses on the perspectives of the public interests of railway governance.

Keywords:   Hong Kong railways, MTRC, KCRC, railway governance, railway reforms, modernisation
