Bush 4141 Locomotive Will Stop In Omaha

The train that carried former President George H.W. Bush's casket from Spring, Texas to College Station to be buried will be making a stop in Omaha.

The Union Pacific 4141 locomotive and the Council Bluffs car  will be temporarily displayed and open to the public on Sunday at Home Plate next to TD Ameritrade Park.

The gates will open at 1:30 p.m. and the locomotive and car will arrive at 2 p.m.  The public will have an opportunity to see and photograph the historic equipment. 

The gates will close at 5 p.m.  After the public viewing, the locomotive and car will remain on display behind locked gates until noon on Wednesday.  The locomotive is 16 feet tall and can travel up to 70 miles per hour. 

President Bush actually drove the train for two miles on the day it was unveiled in 2005.
