Can you “bear”-lieve it?
19 teddies need reuniting with their owners!


South Western Railway (SWR) is hoping to reunite children with their beloved toy bears.

In the last year, a total of 19 teddies have turned up in the operator’s lost and found collection. Unlike their most famous lost cousin, however, these bears are being looked after in London Waterloo, rather than Paddington.

The lost toys… Do you recognise one?

With National Teddy Bear Day being on 9 September 2021, rail staff are hoping to find the owners of the cuddly toys and have released pictures in the hopes they can be returned to their owners.

‘Clare Mann’, SWR.

Managing director of SWR, Claire Mann, said: “We know that the teddies and toys left on our trains have a loving owner out there but have been sadly left behind on a train seat or dropped on the floor in the hurry of boarding or departing a train.

“We hope that the teddies featured in our campaign will be reunited with their owners, fixing broken hearts, and providing the perfect companion to look out the window with on their next adventure together!”

If you recognise any of the following teddies from the line up below, please get in touch with SWR via Twitter (@SW_Help) and #SWRsLostTeddies or email lost.property@swrailway.com.
