Well, its got a new tale to tell now!The sculpture, titled Whale Tails, is the work of the architect and artist Maarten Struijs, and was erected in the water at the end of the tracks in 2002.
Mr Struijs told NOS that he was surprised the structure did not break.
"It has been there for almost 20 years and... you actually expect the plastic to pulverise a bit, but that is apparently not the case," he said.
"I'll make sure that I get a few photos," he added. "I could never have imagined it that way."
I find myself in the same situation. Every time I think I know how to write the expression I need, I get everything back, or nothing.
