Thousands of people lined up along the route of the funeral train that was taking the remains of former President George H.W. Bush from Houston about 80 miles northwest to his final resting place, his presidential library in College Station, Texas, on Thursday, Dec. 6.
The train is a Union Pacific Corp locomotive, numbered 4141 and bearing the name "George Bush 41" on the side.
Bush, the 41st U.S. president, died last week in Texas at age 94. His remains were flown to Texas on Wednesday evening after a state funeral at Washington's National Cathedral attended by U.S. President Donald Trump, as well as four former U.S. presidents and foreign leaders. (Reuters).
