What was the crime?

At three o’clock in the morning of 3rd August 1963, robbers stole £2.5 million from a train travelling from Glasgow in Scotland to London. The robbers stopped the train at a quiet spot in the English countryside about 40 kilometres north of London. At the time, it was the biggest robbery ever in the United Kingdom. The money was old banknotes which were being taken to London to be destroyed.

What kind of train was it?

In the 1960s, mail trains made the 500-kilometre journey from Glasgow to London every night. The train contained all kinds of mail - letters, parcels etc. One of the coaches on the train was called the High Value Packages Coach. The bags containing the money were in this coach. It was the second one behind the engine at the front of the train. There were five Post Office workers in the High Value Coach. There was a driver, his assistant and a fireman in the diesel engine at the front of the train.

What happened?

There are signal lights for train drivers all the way along railway lines. Green lights mean the driver can continue. Amber lights are a warning to drivers that they will soon see a red light, where they must stop. At night, when there are very few trains running, the lights are almost always green.

The gang knew that the only way to stop the train was to change the green lights to amber and red. One of the robbers, an ex-railway worker, knew that if the lights were broken, a signal would flash in a nearby signal box. So the robbers didn’t break the green lights. They added two new lights along the track. The first one (amber) was placed several hundred metres before a bridge, the second one (red) was placed near the bridge. The gang covered the green lights with gloves. The gloves later provided useful clues for the police.

On the night of the robbery, the mail train approached the bridge. The driver saw the amber light and applied the brakes. A few hundred metres later, he saw the red light and stopped. The fireman got out of the engine to use the emergency telephone next to the railway line. Almost immediately, the gang overpowered the driver and his assistant. The driver was severely injured. Then the robbers broke into the High Value Packages coach, ordered the Post Office workers to lie down and stole the money.

How did the police solve the crime?

The thieves had rented a large isolated farmhouse about 40 kilometres from the railway line. After the robbery, they went back there. While they were there, they ate and drank and played a board game called Monopoly. They left mountains of evidence that they had been there. The next day, another member of the gang was planning to go to the farm and clean it from top to bottom.

The other gang member was very lazy — he didn’t go to clean the farm. When the police finally discovered the farm, they had all the evidence they needed: clothing, fingerprints, footprints, specimens of hair etc. All the robbers had left their fingerprints on the Monopoly game. There were also the remains of a meal. Police were able to find where the robbers had bought the food.

All the robbers were arrested and sent to prison. Some of them were sentenced to 30 years imprisonment, not only because they stole the money, but because the driver later died of his injuries.

Assessment: Peer/ Self assessment
