Lost & Found on Metro North

... Other items have become office lore. In the day when Metro-North
trains stopped near a veterans' hospital in Montrose, more than a few
sailors and soldiers returning from New York after a night of drinking
left behind their prosthetic limbs.

And one woman, so the story goes, purposely abandoned her late husband's
ashes to repay him for the nights he claimed to have fallen asleep on
the last train home when, in fact, he was with his mistress. The
railroad learned this months later when a woman called to confess. She
never did pick up the ashes, though, and Metro-North had to get rid of
them and the urn they came in...
