Spinning our Wheels is a commuting blog about the challenges of getting around Atlanta by car, bus, MARTA, bicycles and on foot written by transportation reporter David Wickert

At the MARTA lost and found? Hats, wallets, dentures, a leg.

Chances are, if you lost something on MARTA that wasn’t purloined by a passenger, it wound up at their version of the island of misfit toys — the Lost and Found office at Five Points Rail Station.

But talk to Jessica Guinn or James Willoughby, the two full-time “lost and found coordinators,” and they’ll tell you about the stranger stuff. Items you’d never expect a person to misplace, like a prosthetic leg. Or an oxygen tank. Even a set of dentures.
