Story of the week #11 – Train Whale

Have you ever wondered if a whale sculpture made of plastic can support the weight of a train carriage? No, me neither. However, the answer is yes, yes it can!

This was discovered in Rotterdam yesterday, when a train overran the blocks at Spijkenisse station. Nobody was hurt, but the incident was certainly strange and that’s why it’s this week’s Story of the Week.

We recommend a B1 level and above to enjoy this week’s story.
