EP. 73: Train Robbery at Baxter’s Curve

Ben Kilpatrick was an outlaw.  He rode with Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid and the Wild Bunch into western infamy.  The law caught up with him and he went to prison where he met Ole Hobeck.  They two decided when they got out, they’d go into business together.  Being outlaws, that business was train robbery.  So they set out for the barren landscapes and lonely railroad tracks of West Texas to score big.  But they didn’t count on meeting Wells Fargo agents David Trousdale and J.K. Reagen.  They would soon wish they had thought twice…Hear about one of the last train robberies in Texas in the latest episode of Wise About Texas.
