Canada's last great train robbery

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Not many people know the details of one of Alberta's most dramatic crime stories — the great train robbery of the Crowsnest Pass, which happened 100 years ago, this weekend.

"On Aug. 2, 1920, three men boarded a train in Lethbridge, rode quietly and then robbed the passengers and conductor just past Coleman in the rugged Crowsnest Pass.

"It did not end well.

"The men got away that day; one escaped to the U.S., and the other two were eventually killed in a shootout with police at the Bellevue Cafe."
