The great train fiddle
A BRITISH railway company said on Monday it was helping a renowned violinist track down a 310-year-old violin he accidentally left on a train.
Southeastern, which runs commuter services to London, is working with police to try to locate the instrument, worth an estimated £250,000 ($A470,000).
Musician Stephen Morris accidentally left the violin, which was made by Roman master craftsman David Tecchler in 1709, on a suburban train last Tuesday. He purchased the instrument in 2003.
