MISC | Your most bizarre metro/subway souvenir

I don't collect the usual souvenirs -- pins, pens, maps, t-shirts, tickets, or sign replicas -- (okay, I collect maps ) -- and I don't want to see those here

How about the more curious stuff?

My NYC subway map shower curtain:



A set of pencils from Tokyo that look like the different train sets:



My self-made Metro Bits coffee mug:



Original London Underground Johnston font set for Windows:




How about your craziest or most unusual subway souvenirs?

Not very special: a coffee mug with a map of the Paris metro.

I have a thing for tube maps too, but I think i have one of the weirdest souvenirs.

I was involved with the july 7 London underground bombings and consequently have piece of C Stock circle line tube train embedded in both my shoulder and leg.

i also have the London tube mugs and boxer shorts

Well maybe the weirdest but not the most joyful.

I (obviously) have loads which aren't commercially available... Amongst them a Guard's Key (now defunct), 'Do not board this carriage' stickers (also now defunct), plus Guard's and Drivers' duty books and timetables spanning my 10 year career. I have line-specific uniform ties, internal keepsakes handed out to commemorate events (e.g. 100 years of the Bakerloo Line mug, umbrella & watch), and one of the old grab straps (or rather plastic ball on a spring) which have also just disappeared with the D Stock refurb.
