Train Heist

Share

I love Obscure History

On August 8th, 1963, a gang of 15 men rob a Royal Mail train carrying about $7 million from Glasgow to London. The super-secret train had already picked up mail and cash from banks in Scotland and northern England by the time the thieves sprang into action near Cheddington. However, their getaway plan was not as meticulous as they thought, and most of the gang members were eventually caught.
