Did you happen to misplace your framed “Pirates of the Caribbean” poster?

Check with the Long Island Rail Road. Inside Penn Station, the rail service maintains an office filled with the mundane and wacky items that get left behind, the poster featuring actor Johnny Depp in full pirate regalia among them.

Each year, passengers leave thousands of items on LIRR trains and at stations. In 2016, 16,882 items were turned into the lost and found, and 2017 was on track to hit that level again, the LIRR said. The office receives about 60 customer inquiries about lost items a day — that’s 1,800 a month.

Here’s a look at some of the most interesting items inside the LIRR Lost and Found.
