LAWN PARTIES …… THE FINAL RESTING PLACE FOR THE LAST TRAIN ROBBERY IN AMERICA!
On the Friday afternoon of Houseparties in 1963, Tiger desperadoes swung into action to pull off the last train robbery in America!
A car was parked across the Dinky line,
Four horses were rented from a nearby stable …..
Masks and six-shooters acquired ……
“Victims” prepared ……
The Great Train Robbery went off like clockwork, with four students riding out of a John Wayne film to hold up the blocked Dinky train on its way to campus!
They fired a couple blanks,
“Kidnapped” four dates and then
(after politely refusing the wallets and gold jewelry offered by clueless commuters)
Galloped into the woods, the eight men and women hanging onto the horses for dear life.
The conductor arrived at Princeton station with the honor of being the victim of the only railway holdup in the United States since 1923!
The pranksters rode over to Cap and Gown in full regalia, stopping by Bo Diddley’s live set on the front lawn.
Thence they rode west, into the sunset and the mists of legend…..
