Hi Melbournians

This is my first post on chockstone, and a sad one at that... Has anyone come across a lonely rope on Melbourne's trains? Last Thursday morning (26.11.2009) I forgot my climbing rope (blue, in a black rope bag) on the Aalamein line towards Flinders Street or, alternatively, on the Sandringham line from Richmond.

I know it's a long shot, but worth a try anyway.

Have you also tried connex/ new metro train company that took over from them, ~ lost property section, or perhaps reported the loss to the Flinders St Police Station?

I hope you get it back.

Also try the luggage hall at Southern Cross station. Its another central point for lost property... although im not sure if Connex/MTrain stuff goes there.

another option is to ring Sandringham station directly. Train from Sandringham arrives at Flinders st then goes back right away and sometimes drivers pick up lost things on terminus stations and leave them there.

It would be good to know that an enquiry re lost property with one section of the rail network would flow through to the other sections, ... (as should be the case with enquiries at a police station), ... but in these bureaucratic days I suspect that one needs to do their own follow-through.

I would've thought a dynamic rope would be shit for tying stuff onto a trailer and less than bomber due to the stretch.

Actually stretchy rope is better for tying stuff down: the elasticity absorbs some of the inevitable slackening. My old dynamic ropes are quite sought after in the family (especially the 9mm)

If someone is silly enough to loose it, it really should be up to them to do the leg work to find it rather than giving station staff a headache trying to run around in circles. Not to mention that operating a railway network/station does have more pressing issues to attand to!!

And Ruuna, please dont think im having a go... we've all been silly and donated to 'lost property' at some point....

Why do they have a lost property section with someone paid to 'man' it then?

You must be younger than me, or work for the modern railway network?
Once upon a time there was such a thing as customer service...

There is no lost property section at Southern Cross Station. It goes to the luggage hall where they document it and store it for collection.

Again... If you loose something then you should do the leg work. I dont think that is unreasonable. Especially if the item is of value/importance.

Put a piece in the paper. You never know....
