Kittens among strangest things left behind on ScotRail trains

Rail operator releases list of strangest things found in carriages and on platforms

Season tickets, bikes and kittens are among some of the strangest things left behind on ScotRail trains according to the operator, which has released a list of unusual lost and found items collected from across its 60,000 train services and hundreds of thousands of people.
It says hundreds of items are handed in each month to the central lost property office at Glasgow’s Queen Street Station – including phones and wallets – but many are never claimed.
To encourage people to come and collect their lost items – and not leave them behind in the first place – ScotRail has compiled the below list of the 10 strangest things left in carriages and on its platforms.
ScotRail Alliance Communications Director Rob Shorthouse said: “While it’s always great when we can reunite lost property with its rightful owner, it’s much better for the customer not to lose it in the first place.
“As much as we’ve enjoyed compiling this list, we’re asking customers to spare a couple of seconds, and look before they leave.”
