Hello. I'm William Hung, and I eat artichokes. 

Northern Greeced [OE: WHAT DID I TYPE?] isn't the only place with trains. (How do you like THAT transition?)

Hong Kong Railway Museum (香港鐵路博物館) is a railway museum in Tai Po of Hong Kong. It is now under management of Leisure and Cultural Service Department.

Opened in 1985, it is located at the site where the Old Tai Po Market Railway Station was built in 1913. The Old Tai Po Market Railway Station was declared a monument a year after it ceased to be a station in 1983. The site, together with the buildings and relevant exhibits, were then given to the government by KCRC with compliments for the construction of the Museum.

Yes, a number of compliments were given:
  • You are the best government we ever had.

  • I'll miss you after 1997.

  • Du bist heiss.

There are three carriages on the tracks for public viewing and appreciation of the contrast between the old and the new - a railroad pushcart, a passenger carriage used between the post-war years and the early 1970s as well as a diesel locomotive introduced in Hong Kong in 1955 which is called "Sir Alexander".

And Johnny Cash isn't the only singer who has been associated with trains. William Hung has been involved with several trains. For example (emphasis mine):

He did a stunningly, comically bad rendition of stunningly, comically good looking Ricky Martin's "She Bangs," and it was precisely for the train-wreck quality of Hung's "American Idol" audition that the Fox show aired it in February. If William Hung hadn't been so irredeemably bad, no one would know him today.

Here comes another one, as the story continues:

But then a funny thing happened.

Instead of glowering at the judges or striding off in a snit, Hung withstood the panel's snickering mockery, looked into the cameras and said, "I already did my best. I have no regrets at all. I have no professional training. Thank you."

And, through the magic of remixing, Hung has been associated with another train:

These are remixes of William Hung....

2. Ode to William Hung ft Anti Mattah
3. William Hung - Jay-Z
4. William Hung vs. Biggie
5. William Hung vs New York Streets
6. William Hung The Millionaire
7. William Hung vs Paula Abdul
8. William Hung vs. Dead Prez
9. William Hung vs. Kanye West
10. William Hung vs. Eminem
11. William Hung At a Rave
12. William Visits vs Usher & Ludacris
13. William Hung vs. Soul Train
14. William getting Jiggy

But I don't know what means of transport he used to go to Castroville in May. Courtesy UPI.

'American Idol 3' reject William Hung crowned Artichoke King

UPI News Service, 05/19/2006

"American Idol" reject William Hung has been named the first "Artichoke King" of Castroville, Calif.

The Hong Kong native who leaped to fame with his horrendous audition for the Fox TV talent competition will become the first to wear the Artichoke King crown during the Castroville Artichoke Festival Saturday, the Santa Cruz (Calif.) Sentinel reported.
