The funeral train that carried President George H.W. Bush last December to his final resting place on the Texas A&M campus will be put on permanent display on the grounds of his presidential library.
Union Pacific 4141, painted blue, gray and white to mirror the colors of Air Force 1, was brought to College Station on Friday for the announcement. David B. Jones, president and chief executive officer of the George & Barbara Bush Foundation, said the train will be installed in a year or so near the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, and unveiled a concept for the partially-enclosed display.
