Stradivarius violin in a museumA Stradivarius violin – possibly worth several million dollars – has been handed in to a lost-and-found office in Switzerland office after a hapless musician left it on a train.

The owner had lent the precious instrument to a musician friend who took it on a train on Friday but forgot it when he got off at Bern, police said.

This is the third time in four years that a musician’s priceless Stradivarius was returned by kind strangers. Two cabbies from Newark and New York City were each hailed for their honesty toward forgetful musicians in 2008 and 2009.
