    - Trains going to London do not stop at this station.
    - This was an innovation introducing many new methods.
    - In his time there were few laws protecting the freedom of the individual.
    - Students wishing to apply for a scholarship must fill in this form.
    - The visitors wishing to see the museum had to wait for a long time.

    Are these sentences correct?

    The people who saw the accident were called in to testify.

    Can this be reduced to:

    The people seeing the accident were called in to testify. OR
    The people having seen the accident were called in to testify.

    Re: delition

    The first batch are fine. I don't like the reduction for the second sentence, and the second form strikes me as definitely wrong.
