Some 7,500 lost property items lost on trains or at railway stations have been handed in to the railway company this year, of which more than 4,000 have been returned to their owners, Mávinform said on Wednesday.
According to the statement, passengers mostly forget phones, wallets, bank cards, small bags, backpacks, gym bags, suitcases, documents, books, clothing, glasses, umbrellas, canteens and trinkets on trains and in station buildings.
However, this year's lost property included a violin, guitar, drill, scooter and smartwatch, the railway company said.
The larger amounts of cash lost and found are usually in the range of a few tens of thousands of forints, they added.
In cases where the owner of the returned item cannot be identified, the item is usually kept at the station for 90 days. To receive a lost object, the passenger must be able to clearly identify it as his or her own, providing the characteristics, they said.
If the owner of the object, which includes a sum of money, does not come forward within 1-2 days, the money will be registered by the railway company. The money that is not sought or cannot be returned because the passenger's contact details cannot be identified will be state property under the Civil Code in force, the statement said.
