A Train Driver’s View of the Site of the Great Train Robbery

If you are a train fan or interested in what the site of the Great Train Robbery looks like now from a driver’s point-of-view, here is a new video.

The part relelvant to the robbery starts at around 4 minutes. The video is part of a new series that offers an insight into the West Coast Main Line from the driver’s cab with commentary by Avanti West Coast train drivers.

In the video the train is travelling from London to Glasgow, so travelling in the opposite direction to the train involved in the train robbery, but the driver explains the scene as he covers the key parts of the track. You will notice the train passes a couple of trains coming in the other direction, those are on the track the Great Train Robbery train was using.
