September 1959 - M. B. Tiny Worden, owner of the Temple Theatre, found that a touch of old-fashioned realism in showmanship can boomerang and almost wound up in the Antrim County Jail as a suspected train robber. Along with other business men of the town, Tiny is sponsoring operations at the East Jordan and Southern Railroad, one of the few surviving steam rails in the country, as a periodic tourist attraction and decided to make a trip memorable for all concerned by adding an un-announced old-fashioned train robbery. The sponsors themselves were of course the robbers.

But they reckoned without the presence of the state police. The principal source of trouble was the lack of a permit to carry the concealed weapons - the artillery for the robbery - over to the site of the holdup. However, the police decided to let the amateur bandits off with a lecture.
