We have all had that sinking feeling when you get off the train and realise that you have a bag or an umbrella onboard and you know it is likely to be gone for good. It must be slightly worse, however, if the item you have forgotten happens to be a valuable family heirloom. Robert Napier from Wiltshire had just taken his 1698 Venice made Goffriller violin to London to be valued and you can imagine his delight when he found it was worth £180,000. Unfortunately when he got off the train at Taunton on his way home, he forgot all about the family heirloom which was still on the train. Despite a £10,000 reward being offered and an extensive search being carried out there is still no sign of the violin.
