Lost Camera -G324 Hefei South to Beijing South
Hello. My daughter travelled from Heifi South to Beijing South on the G324 at 15:14 on Wednesday 24th October. She was part of a school trip from England and unfortunately she left her camera on the train. It is a black Panasonic DMC-TZ20.

If it is found is there any way of paying for it to be returned back to us in the UK? My daughter returned home yesterday and is upset that she has lost all the photo's of her trip. If it is found and it is unable to be returned, is there anyway of sending the memory card back or alternatively a copy of all the pictures she has taken.

Many Thanks

You need to find it at the station. These information can be find on some LED screens including train number, time, status, checkin gate, platform etc. Once you find your checkin date, you can wait at that waiting area. Once the checkin begins, you can go through the gate and reach your platform.
