Event Short Description

The story about the Great Mail Train Robbery in 1963

Event Information

60th anniversary of The Great Train Robbery

Ian’s talk on the robbery is the result of years of research and fact finding together with his personal goal being, how on earth do you stop a express train doing 95 miles per hour in the middle of nowhere and drive it yourself??

Ian brings a 1960’s colour light signal with him to demonstrate how it was rigged to stop the train.

The talk isn’t about glorifying the robbers, it’s about the British Rail staff and police and stories behind their experience.

This year of course is the 60th anniversary of the robbery which makes it even more interesting.
