This is not a story about the price we pay for travelling by train in the 21st Century..!

In August 1963 a Glasgow to London Royal Mail train was subjected to a heist the like of which has never been seen since. Ian Boskett has researched the event and subsequent reports and enquiries. An English Electric cl.40 (not this one!) was hauling the train which was brought to a stand in Buckinghamshire by the robbers.
