Greater Anglia have revealed some of the odd items they have had left on their trains - including a front door and an expensive violin.

The following items were all found/handed in on Greater Anglia trains.

A front door

So many questions - why was a front door brought onto a train? How did it get forgotten?


Child? Check. Bag? Check. Phone? Check. Pram? Oh dear.


Someone’s home was abnormally quiet that evening.

Prosthetic leg

Hopefully the owner was reunited with their lost property quickly.


I imagine their heart skipped a beat when they discovered their stethoscope was still on the train.

Sleeping bags

There is nothing like making yourself at home on the train when you have a long journey ahead of you. Just make sure you remember to gather everything when you leave.

Guitar/guitar pedal

Band practice had to be cancelled that night.

Valuable painting

I wonder if Van Gogh ever left one of his masterpieces on public transport.

Expensive violin

There seems to be a theme of musical instruments left behind on Greater Anglia trains.
