True story firsthand account by America’s last moving train robber as told to author Wilson Casey. The 1949 U.S. national press labeled the robbery as pulled off by the "Zoot Suit Bandits".

In 1949, two bandits from Youngstown, OH boarded a B & O passenger train from Washington, DC to Detroit.  In the West Virginia mountains near Martinsburg, Luman “Lu” Ramsdell and his gang stopped the train to rob and terrorize nearly 150 people on board.  They pistol-whipped several and shot at others before exiting the train to next rob a tavern and hijack getaway cars.  National headlines likened the event to the exploits of Jess James and the halcyon days of the Wild West.  Lu and the gang led authorities on a chase that ended with a harrowing shootout five blocks from the White House.  Climb aboard with author Wilson Casey for a firsthand account from the head bandit himself in the true tale of America’s last moving train robbery.
