Summary:A reconstruction of the Great Train Robbery of August 8 1963, when a gang stopped a mail train near the English town of Aylesbury and got away with 2 1/4-million pounds in cash. In the end, all the gang were caught and the leaders given 30-year jail sentences. One, Ronald Biggs, later escaped and later moved to Brazil. In England there was sympathy for the robbers, so brilliantly was the crime carried out.
