This weekend, a subway train in Spijkenisse (near Rotterdam) crushed through the end stop of a terminal station, but got caught by a piece of art.

Wow, that gives a whole new meaning to a whale of a tale ... BigGrin

From the article linked at the bottom of that link is this picture ...

The artist who made the tails says "According to Struijs, the image of the damaged metro, balancing on its 10 meter high whale tail, is a work of art in itself. "I could never have imagined it that way." The architect calls the situation at metro station De Akkers "very visual". It reminds him of the artwork Rode BMW by collective Kunst & Vaarwerk , in which a car appears to have driven through the railing of a Rotterdam parking garage."
