The Great Train Robbery
by Randall L. Whipkey
When Butch Moondance robbed the Gallup-Santa Fe Express, he took a total of
$2500 from four of the passengers. Each of the four victims, including
Annie Starr, lost a different sum to the infamous outlaw. From the sheriff's
report below, you should be able to solve the Great Train Robbery Logic
Problem of where on the train Butch held up each person (one was robbed while
sitting in the passenger coach) and how much money he stole from him or her.
- Immediately after robbing Doc Masterson of his whole bankroll, Butch
held up another of the victims in the sleeper car--for $250 more than
he got from Doc.
- Of the four, Wyatt Hitchcock did not lose the most to Butch.
- Immediately after robbing the victim who was trying to hide behind a
barrel in the baggage car, Butch Moondance took Belle Cody's cash, $750
less than he stole from the victim in the baggage car.
- The person Butch held up in the dining car didn't lose the smallest
sum, $250, to the gunman.
