MTR Corporation has taken delivery of the first of 10 three-car trains from CNR Changchun Railway Vehicles, China, which will be used on Hong Kong's new South Island Line.

The remaining nine trains will be delivered by August and following commissioning the fleet will enter service when the line opens next year.

The 7km South Island Line will be a medium-capacity line linking the existing MTR network at Admiralty with the Southern District of Hong Kong. The line will have four stations: Ocean Park, Wong Chuk Hang, Lei Tung and South Horizons.
