Kam Sheung Road (KCRC)
Kam Sheung Road is a KCRC station station located between Pat Heung and Kam Tin . It is between Tsuen Wan West and Yuen Long stations. Kam Sheung Road was the arena for the West Rail's opening ceremony .
The station is to the north of the rail depot of the line, and the control centre for the West Rail is also next to the station. However, the station itself is a short distance from the actual rural towns of Kam Tin or Pat Heung . Originally there were various choices as to the station's name, but residents from nearby could not decide upon the name of the settlements that the station would be named after, so the main road nearest to the station was used instead.
Although the station is not expected to have high passenger traffic, the station attracts quite a number of villagers from Kam Tin since the West Rail is their only direct link to the urban areas in Kowloon. If the northern extension of the line and the proposed Regional Express are built, Kam Sheung Road will serve as the interchange with the main line, and the station will be expanded too.
