First post on this forum so apologies if this is in the wrong area.

I take the the 16:26 XC (Cross Country Trains (franchise)) service from Cheltenham Spa to Bristol Parkway every Mon-Fri. On Tuesday 26th April, I left my headphones on the seat in the rear carriage.

I phoned XC who referred me to FGW (First Great Western), who informed me that the item will be recovered (if still there) when the train terminates at Paignton and sent to the lost property office at Temple Meads - I will then be called in 7 days. Unsurprisingly I got the call to say that the item hadn't arrived and that they would call again in another 7 days.

They were very good headphones and quite expensive. I'm absolutely gutted and annoyed with myself and desperate to get them back, hence the post on here just in case somebody might have seen them or someone pick them up  Smiley

They are quite distinctive - they are the big, over ear type with a metal headband and leather finish on the top part. The inner part of the ear cups are covered in a yellow cloth.

Thanks, in hope  Smiley

Hi, John - and welcome to the forum, though obviously not in the best of circumstances for you.

Hard to know whether to post under "Cross Country" or "Bristol Commuters" ... I'm adding a link in this thread to the other one so that we can keep the discussions in one place,  but leaving this thread (locked) in place to you're provided with a flag in both places.

Other thread is at

Coffee Shop Admin, Vice Chair of Melksham Rail User Group, and on the board of TravelWatch SouthWest.
Do you have something you would like to add to this thread, or would you like to raise a new question at the Coffee Shop? Please [register] (it is free) if you have not done so before, or login (at the top of this page) if you already have an account - we would love to read what you have to say!

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
