The 'audacious' train robber would have been Bill Carlisle aka the Gentleman Bandit recently released from the Wyoming State Penitentary. These old papers are fun to read!

Over the next several days we will see this story play out in the Casper paper. At the time, it must have been quite the tense story for Wyomingites, particularly those who had to go anywhere, given the reliance on rail.
