Have you left anything behind?

QUEENSLAND Rail is urging customers to check they have all of their personal belongings before leaving their train, after about 14,000 lost items were handed in on the network last year.

On the Beenleigh line alone more than 780 lost items were processed in 2014, with the top stations for forgetful customers being Beenleigh, Loganlea and Yeerongpilly.

Queensland Rail's Rebecca Masci said some of the more unusual items found included musical instruments, boxing gloves, a mouth guard and camping equipment, including a sleeping bag, chair and esky, fishing rods and a tackle box.

"Items regularly found include glasses and sunglasses, umbrellas, backpacks, toiletries, wallets, mobile phones, keys and computers," she said.

"Last year we returned some very important items to customers, including 21 birth certificates, a marriage certificate and four rings of considerable value, including a man's wedding ring."

If lost items are not collected within three months, Queensland Rail donates them to not-for-profit charity partners.
