FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Two valuable musical instruments were recently returned to their rightful owners by Metro-North Railroad employees after they accidentally left them on trains, according to the New Haven Register.
Conductor Bob McDonough retrieved a violin belonging to a Stamford woman from an overhead rack that was later identified as a Stradivarius worth an estimated $500,000, the article said.
In October, Westport's famous Nile Rodgers, co-founder of the band Chic, exited a train in a hurry, forgetting his 1959 Fender Stratocaster guitar. It was also later found undamaged and returned to a grateful Rodgers, according to the report.
