Most likely an insider is involved else there is no way to know when and in which coach the money is being taken and by which train on which date. I feel someone from the railways also is involved

Agree with centaur, most likely an insider job, reminds me of one of my favourite movies : "The Great Train Robbery"

Can be exchanged in a bank for new ones. I doubt the serial numbers of the notes would be available to find out if they are stolen
