Brakes put on train sculpture

October 14, 2008|From the Associated Press

The sculpture shows a man about to fall under a subway car driven by a Grim Reaper figure.

Its creator says it was a tribute to train drivers and the fears they face. But the work's planned home, a London railway station, said Monday that it had canceled plans to put it on display after complaints by railway unions and the families of suicide victims.

Officials at St. Pancras station, the hub for Eurostar high-speed shuttle services to France and Belgium, said the carving by sculptor Paul Day was inappropriate.
