Conductor's Watch and Key Chain, 1992

Aluminum sculpture on platform wall

To symbolize the romance and excitement of train travel's rich history, all under watchful eye of the train conductor, David Saunders immortalized the conductor's watch and key chain. Made of aluminum tubing to echo the handrails and silver pipes that run along the walls of the station platform, the sculpture blends into the overall design of the site. "The chain mimics the movement of the Long Island Rail Road's long silver trains that take commuters to and from their destinations," says Saunders, "those speedy back and forth movements are echoed in the long swooping gestures of the sculpture's silver lines."
