Great Train Robber Gordon Goody set to cash in on new book from Almeria home

THE mastermind behind the Great Train Robbery is still cashing in on the infamous heist some 60 years on.

Surfacing from his home in Almeria, Gordon Goody, posed for photos and signed copies of his latest memories at a book launch in Antas.

The 85-year-old who spent 12 years in prison for his part in the ‘crime of the century’ is hoping his book How to Rob a Train will refill the coffers as his money has run dry.

Goody moved to Spain after his release from prison in 1975 to run beach bar Chiringuito Kon Tiki in Mojacar.
