I recently bought Ticket to Ride. original North America Map version.
we played it many times and love it.
I had the idea to do a Train Robbery Variant.
My bother inlaw works on the railroad and one of his main functions is fixing derailments. My wife had the idea of workign a derailment into the scenario as well.
This is what we came up with after a few ideas and play tests. This works well.

Ticket to Ride: Train Robbery variant

Train Robbery
remove 1 of each wagon colour card from the deck
With an indelible marker write an "R" or some similar marking representing Robbery

Derailment
remove 1 (2 or 3. your choice on level of disruption) Engines from the deck
With an indelible marker write an "D" or some similar marking representing Derailment

How to use:
game play works as normal with the following exceptions
Robbery:
when a train is built using a card with an "R" on it a train robbery occurs
the player laying the Robbery card may now select a player and steal a random card from them

Derailment:
when a train is built using a card with an "D" on it a train Derailment occurs
the player laying the Derailment card may now select a players train on the board and derail one of its cars.
Lay the wagon token on its side representing derailment.
When detailed, that train can NOT count toward route completion Nor longest train.

Repairing a derailment:
derailed cars can be put back on the rails restoring the above conditions by
1: this action costs a turn and is the only thing that can be done during this turn.
2a: paying 2 cards of the colour of the train route. Any two matching cards can be used for a Gray route.
2b: OR paying one engine card

Re: Ticket to Ride: OLD WEST variant
This looks interesting.
But the name is already taken by an official expansion:
Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 6 – France & Old West
