Mike Holgate's survey of crimes committed on or involving the railways marked the anniversaries, in 2013, of the Great Train Robbery of 1963 and the Whitechapel Murders in 1888, now thought to have been committed by a railway employee. Holgate describes the crimes, criminals and their comeuppance in these and other cases, including railway carriage murders, grand thefts such as the Great Bullion Robbery of 1855, and the attempted assassination of Queen Victoria at Windsor railway station in 1882.
