edit Major incidents
edit The crash incident in the base
At around 05:00 on 21 July, 2005, a Princess SP1900 (no. D317~D318) crashed with another one Princess SP1900 (no. D325~D326) face to face while marching in Pat Heung Base. Their heads no.D318 and no.D325 were hurt. Since the incident was happened in the base, it was not reported to the public, but it was known by the public later because a KCR staff betrayed the information few days after the incident.
edit The transformer incident
At 09:13 on 14 February, 2007, a Princess SP1900 (no. D305~D306) broke down and lost the running power when one of the transformers mounted on the princess's head exploded. It is suspected that the overheated transformer caused its insulating fat to vapourize, thus causing the explosion and fire. In addition, the circuit breaker of the transformer apparently failed to cut the power supply to the transformer. Eleven people were sent to hospital because of feeling uncomforted.
An investigation said that the brakedown of transformers is because that some faults have already formed during the stage of embryo development, as well as the princess was strucked by lightning. Thus problems had been being accumulated and causing this brakedown. After that, KCR Corporation decided to replace the transformers on the princesses' head as the new fat-free and anti-explosive one.
Before the merger of KCR and MTR on 2 December, 2007, Princesses SP1900 and Princesses SP1950 faced the fate that having their KCR logo cut away and replaced with MTR logo, indicating that the princesses will donate themselves to MTR afterwards. Practiced for a long time, Concerto of door close of MTR can be presented by Princesses SP1900 and Princesses SP1950 formally.
edit Strange disappearance that no both can appear once together
edit Self-walk report
Some reliable sources said that the Princess SP1900 left the railway and rushed onto the pedestrian way for self-walk:
- 25 February, 2007, in HITEC (Hong Kong International Trade & Exhibition Centre), then she was broadcast through the JP Time programme by aTV 7 days later.
- 17 November, 2007, in Hong Kong Railway Museum, being the youngest railway showpiece in the museum.
- 12 February, 2008, in Liwan district, Guangzhou city, Guangdong province, mainland CHINA
- 27 April, 2008, in Portas do Cerco, Macau
- 3 October, 2008, in Yuexiu district, Guangzhou city, Guangdong province, mainland CHINA
- 22 November, 2008, in Hong Kong Railway Museum, being the youngest railway showpiece in the museum again.
- 27 June, 2009, in Xinxiangzhou district, Zhuhai city, Guangdong province, mainland CHINA; but since Zhuhai is a city for resorting and elderly caring, Princess SP1900 had rapidly degenerated as Grandma SP1900 (千九婆婆)
“Why does a train can do self-run?”
“Just having served for several years, how come SP1900 gets into the museum so fast?”
“Why does the commuter train in Hong Kong SAR pass through the Lo Wu Bridge (Luohu Bridge) and enters mainland China?”
“There is no any heavy railway in Macau, but how come there is a heavy railway vehicle coming?”
- Moreover, on the very final train of KCR departed at around zero o'clock on 2 December, 2007, there was a passenger watching the photo album of Princess SP1900. It is said that the guy would highly-possibly be a photographer who falls in love with Princess SP1900 stealthily and the guy was reported by TVB News at that night. (PS. Contents of the link are in Chinese. The guy just mentioned is the one who was reported wearing a white cap with a KCR logo in front......)
edit Luck of love
By her placidity and sweet-nature, Princess SP1900 gets admires from some railway fans. It is said that someone made love to Princess SP1900 around the Valentine's Day 2008. Later that guy even showed some of his minds to Princess SP1900 such as praise of beauty, support and conservation. (PS. Contents of links are in Chinese.)
