Top 10 Largest Bank Robberies in Modern History    

#10. The Great Train Robbery
Buckinghamshire, UK - 1963
Stolen: £.2.6 million ($4.1 million)

This finely orchestrated operation to intercept a Royal Mail train full of high-value packages (en route from Glasgow) was devised over the course of several months. A gang of 15 robbers hatched and executed the now-legendary plan, which involved rigging the trackside signals to stop the train in a remote location, where the conductor was overpowered and the loot was stolen. Unsurprisingly, it's served as the inspiration for a whole crop of films and books since.
