That is, by sheerest coincidence, yourself.

Game Instructions: You can have only one statue at a time. This one will create opportunities to call in favours from Bohemians. The more things you build in this neighbourhood, the more additional buildings will cost, as land becomes less available.

The help of the Union

The Union workers are permitted to work on projects 'in the immediate vicinity or on the grounds' of any Railway building: they build the base of the statue […] The actual art is a separate commission, requiring the help of a[…] Bohemian Sculptress.


Description summary:
The second paragraph changes with the number of statues built in your honour. The third depends on your Tracklayers' Displeasure.

Honoured with a Statue -Second paragraph
1It isn't your first statue, of course. Your image can be found elsewhere in London.
2Marble and bronze renditions of your face can be found in several places.
6It isn't your first statue. As a matter of fact, your image is becoming ubiquitous.
Tracklayers' DispleasureDescription
0When the statue is up, it attracts admirers from the local population. "We don't usually get statues out here."
2When the statue is up, the local population treats it to a little mocking humour. One night, someone puts a donkey mask over the face. But it's meant affectionately, no doubt.
3The night after it's put up, the statue is covered in an unidentifiable substance. At least, one wouldn't want to identify it. It does wash off, anyhow.
5-6The night after it's put up, insulting graffiti appears on the base. "Londoner," says one comment. And "Not Needed Here."
7-10The night after it's put up, protesters with hammers have a go at the base of the statue. They don't manage to take it down, and the damage can be repaired. But this is not a tranquil neighbourhood.
