Sunny Bay Station

Sunny Bay Station

Sunny Bay is an MTR station in Yam O (陰澳). It is between Tung Chung and Tsing Yi stations. The station is an interchange station between the Tung Chung Line and the Disneyland Resort Line to Hong Kong Disneyland. The station was originally to be named Yam O (陰澳). Yam O was not used probably because of its ominous connotations (Cantonese Yam is more commonly known to English speakers as Mandarin yin, which means darkness or a negative quality).

The station is the first MTR station to have automatic platform gates (APG) installed on the edge of the platforms. These gates range from 1/2 to 3/4 the height of the platform screen doors found in other MTR stations. In line with ground level and above-ground MTR stations, Sunny Bay and Disneyland Resort Station are not air conditioned, and rely on their open architecture to keep the temperature low.

Services to the station commenced on 1 June 2005. The transfer facilities to the Disneyland Resort Line opened 1 August 2005. The livery of the station is slate grey. Platforms 1 (Tung Chung Line towards Tung Chung) and 3 (Disneyland Resort Line) are located opposite to each other to allow easy interchange of trains for passengers travelling from the urban areas.

The Airport Express line passes through the center of the station without stopping. This station features emergency platforms for the Airport Express.

    Now only a dent in the earth marks the site of these dwellings, with buried cellar stones, and strawberries, raspberries, thimble-berries, hazel-bushes, and sumachs growing in the sunny sward there.... These cellar dents, like deserted fox burrows, old holes, are all that is left where once were the stir and bustle of human life, and “fate, free will, foreknowledge absolute,” in some form and dialect or other were by turns discussed.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The seagull’s wings shall dip and pivot him,
    Shedding white rings of tumult, building high
    Over the chained bay waters Liberty—
    Then, with inviolate curve, forsake our eyes
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)
