Lost Property

We all lose things from time to time!

If we find an item of lost property on our trains, or at one of our stations we will try and contact you if you can be identified.

For items lost on any West Midlands Railway journey, please contact the Lost Property team to tell us what service you were travelling on, and what you lost. The team will search our database to see if anything matches your query. If there are no matches straight away, we will keep your request on file for 3 months in case your item is handed in at a later date.

Reclaiming an item from us

If your item is found onboard our services or at one of our stations, we’ll keep it safe for up to 3 months for you to reclaim. We always ask security questions before returning an item, so make sure you can identify it (and have some ID, so you can identify yourself).

We don’t charge any ‘administration or storage’ fees for any items in our possession. Other train companies may still charge.

If your item is handed in at a station that we call at but don’t operate, charges may be applied.
