Jesse James jumped onto his horse and raced up to the engine where Cole had the engineer pinned down. "Give her a toot, Cole " Jesse shouted, as Cole yanked the whistle and laughed like a child. Before the 10 robbers left the scene, Jesse tossed a stick to the engineer. "Give this to the newspapers. We like to do things in style." Thus providing his own press release of the train robbery.
