Lost DSLR on Amtrak – Hoping to cash in on some good karma and see my vacation pictures again
After a week-long, wonderful vacation in Washington State, I took two planes and a train home and stupidly left my camera on Amtrak. I was on the 135 Northeast Corridor route that got in last night (August 19) at 9:30, sitting in the quiet car, and I stowed my camera under the seat in front of me. It’s a Canon Rebel EOS, a medium-sized black, digital camera with a stubby lens on it. It’s in a black camera bag (a small, shoulder camera) that also has a second, bigger lens in it.
Here’s the thing: I know the camera has some value and someone who finds it might want to see it. I’d love the camera back, but what I really care about are the pictures that I took on my trip. I was with my boyfriend, and we drove through Washington State from Seattle to Spokane – it was my first time seeing such spectacular scenery, and I took tons of pictures. Seattle, Mount Rainier, the Cascades, canyons, waterfalls – and people. If I can’t get the camera back, I would settle for just seeing the memory card with the photos again. I’m just heartbroken to have lost those memories.
I called Union Station/Amtrak lost and found, but they only call back if they find the lost item. If they don’t, then I assume someone out there in the world has my camera. Please please please please please, if you find a camera or see a memory card full of pictures of beautiful, Western scenery, let me know via my Craigslist ad (see link)!
