CHEYENNE, Wyo. A Wyoming man who stole a train from a coal mine and took it for a joyride because he was mad at his boss was sentenced Friday to serve probation and pay restitution. Derek Skyler Brux, 22, will be on supervised release for five years and pay over $63,000 to his employer, Rail Link, after unhitching a pair of engines last fall and speeding down a major rail line in the northeast part of the state.
