Having served the community for 40 years, the Mid-Life Refurbishment (MLR) train “Fly Head” bade us farewell and went into retirement on 6 May 2022. Each MLR train had operated over 6 million car-kilometres, the equivalent of about 150 trips around the Earth.
The MLR train had not only witnessed historical moments like the merger of MTR Corporation and Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC), but also carried precious memories, great and small, of the people of Hong Kong.
A charity sale of a limited quota of 380 straphangers from the retired MLR trains. By buying a straphanger, rail fans can bring a part of “Fly Head” home and make a charitable donation at the same time. MTR will donate the net proceeds from the sale all going to “The Green Earth” to support good causes*.
*Only MTR e-Store order confirmation email (non-tax-deductible) will be issued for the purchases of straphangers from MLR train
Each user can purchase up to two pieces of straphangers per order. A limited quota of 380 straphangers will be available on a first-come, first-served basis while stocks last.
