AN exciting piece of public art in Midland’s Railway Square is ghosting the old steam trains.

Interpretive rail tracks – where rail lines previously existed – house a misting and lighting feature forming part of the ‘Water line’.

It projects a fine water mist that reminiscences the locomotive steam, smoke and movement once found at the Midland Railway Workshops.

Installation of the water line marks the completion of the first stage of landscaping works at Railway Square.

The public can now see new shade structures, seating, lighting and public artworks by local artist Stuart Green.
