Wallet Discovered After 30 Years And Is Returned To Owner

Loughborough Station
I read this snippit in a newspaper earlier this week.

A man has been reunited with a wallet he lost on a train journey more than 30 years ago.

It was discovered at the back of a seat in a railway carriage being restored at a heritage railway. It contained, amongst other things, a £1 note - long out of circulation - a booking slip for a trip to Ireland and a 1982 receipt with an address for a Derek B Gamble in Rugby.

Michael Massey, a volunteer at the railway, decided to try and track down the gentleman and found him now living in West Haddon, near to Rugby.

Mr Gamble, a farmer, who was in his 30s when he lost the wallet, said, "I am pleased and not a little surprised to be reunited with the wallet. It's contents bring back memories of what my family and I were doing over 30 years ago."

Mr Massey said it must have been lost when the carriages were on the Great Central Railway at Loughborough, another heritage line.
