Confusing (wrong) information on the signs above the platform screen doors on the MTR’s Kwun Tong Line:
You don’t change at Mong Kok to go to Tsuen Wan – for that you’ll want Prince Edward.
Likewise, if you want to change to the Tsuen Wan line towards Central you should do that at Mong Kok.
Fortunately this wrong information is only on the platform for trains going towards Tiu Keng Leng, which is why it’s in grey rather than black, but still….
This is actually correct because this has to be taken on a eastbound map, so this is correct information printed on the route maps. Only the westbound interchanges will apply for stations from Shek Kip Mei to Tiu Keng Leng, no interchanges necessary for Yau Ma Tei to Prince Edward, and this is the correct cross-platform interchange module when coming up from Ho Man Tin or Whampoa.

Well, I hadn't thought about it that way, but I suppose it has a certain logic.
But if I'm at Diamond Hill the only way I can get to Prince Edward is on a train towards Whampoa / Ho Man Tin and so I would be changing to the Tsuen Wan line there.
Maybe "MTR Fail" is unfair, but I still think that it would be more helpful to show those interchanges.
