Loop - Easy

Visit the scene of The Great Train Robbery and ride along a part of the robbers' getaway route. In the early hours of 6 Aug 1963, the Glasgow - London mail train, carrying approx £3 million in cash, was brought to a stop at a false red signal. The robbers drove the train a further half a mile to Bridego Bridge, where this ride starts and ends. In less than 20 minutes, the robbers removed 120 mail sacks from the train, using a human chain to transfer the mail sacks down the embankment to a waiting vehicle, before speeding off in the night to their hideaway.
