    Default Modern Day Train Robbery

    I don't think I will be ordering train books of Amazon for the foresable future . Thieves targeting container trains has risen 160% over the past year in Los Angeles namely the Union Pacific Alameda Corridor.

    I remember reading an American story in 3rd grade about some cowboys/robbers who boasted to each other about how much wealth they amassed by robbing trains. It sounded outlandish, since train robberies never happen here. But reading the news and watching all this play out in real life makes me wonder if that story had some truth to it.
