IF YOU want to see the wondrous sculpture pictured below, you have to go to the headquarters of British Rail's Trainload Freight business in Islington, north London. Here, says Keith Crane of BR, 'it's greatly appreciated'. This is just as well: Patrick Barker's sculpture, entitled Watching Whilst Those Around You Limber, cost BR something over pounds 6,000.

BR was advised to buy the piece by Anna Malyckyi of Fine Art Consultants, who claims it is 'designed to be visible from many parts of the building. It's accessible and fun with its lively tumbling figures'. Whether Barker's sculpture will survive privatisation is another matter.
