Train’s “Teddy Rescue” Helps Lost Toys Journey Home

Britain’s First Great Western train company has begun an interesting and endearing campaign to reconnect plush toys left on their various routes to their owners.  The company has posted “mug shots” of many of the misplaced stuffed animals, complete with date found, height, and weight.  Although collected by train staff at the end of routes across all ten counties serviced by the engine line, they all eventually make their way to the lost and found department at Bristol Temple Meads Station.  Once there, the lost toys are cared for until they are reunited with their family.

Anyone who recognizes a missing loved one is asked to email Teddy Rescue so a reunion can be arranged.
