    An American violinist who left her $2.6 million Stradivarius on a train was "more than relieved" when officers retrieved moments before it left the station, NBC News reported.

    The woman forgot the 1727 "General Dupont Grumiaux" edition of the famous violin brand on a luggage rack while traveling from Mannheim to Saarbruecken in western Germany on Tuesday.

    Realizing her error after leaving the train, she alerted the police. One minute before the train departed, officers found the violin and returned it to the musician.
