    I believe the train cart might look like the MTR "Promo" train cart?

    ORWEN: Yes, but what are they going to do for people who come to the park expecting to see the rain instead of a parade?

    That's kind of cool, it would be like the window displays on Main Street but on trains.

    "even if the God does not make America, to enlightens the tourist in the rainy day which gentleman Nepal plays, also cannot go in vain. In a now summer, every time brings forth the rainy day, enlightens gentleman Nepal to go on patrol the performance to be able to perform the rainy day special-purpose entertainment program "the rice wonderful rainy day tick-tock train". Whenever the rainy day, the steam railway engine will be able to lead four to spread the bright orange and the blue color compartment, followed is going on patrol the subject music for the rainy day which the performance designed, carried on goes on patrol the performance. On last truck, but also can have many widely known to enlighten the gentleman Nepal cartoon character, like Mickey Mouse and Tang Laoya and so on, puts on the lovable raincoat, brings the happy atmosphere for the dark strongly fragrant rainy day."

    I love computer translators! :-P

    Seriously, it seems like a really good idea, since I'm sure they get a ton of rain over in Hong Kong. Now, what happens if it starts raining in the middle of a parade?
    Woof!

    I wish I could figure out what the real meaning for the words translated as "Gentleman Nepal" mean. Shows up three times! Very funny translation...

    Actually, I really like the look of the train in the picture above. I think it is a wonderful alternative to missing out completely, and it still manages to provide SOMETHING.

    BTW, nlso - welcome to the forum. I was also wondering where you got the image from? Do you have a link to the article? I was hoping to use it on our upcoming HKDL Source website, but need to quote a source. Thanks!

    Nice Pics! What is the soundtrack they use for this "parade." Or is it just some standard track?
