Lost Property

Lost -Property

We understand how frustrating it can be when you lose something which is why our lost property team are on hand to help reunite you with your missing items.

All items of lost property are kept at our Lost Property office at Newport station - this includes anything found by other train companies whose services end at one of our stations. It can take up to 10 days from the date your items go missing for them to reach our lost property office.  

If your item was left with a different train company, you will need to speak to the train operator who was running your service. View list of train operators and contact details.
We store items for 3 months, after which any unclaimed items are donated to local charities.

If you believe your item to be stolen then you should contact the British Transport Police.
