Union Pacific Locomotive 4141 Heading to Aggieland
All eyes were on Aggieland on Dec. 6, 2018, as President George H.W. Bush made his final journey to Texas A&M via Union Pacific Locomotive 4141.
This spring, the iconic train engine, painted to match Air Force One, will return to Aggieland to remain on permanent display at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum. Union Pacific announced in November 2019 it would donate the locomotive to the museum, and in February the Texas A&M System Board of Regents approved the donation of two acres to expand the grounds of the Museum.
“It is fitting this significant piece of history will now make its permanent home at the Bush Center at Texas A&M,” said Max Angerholzer, CEO of the George & Barbara Bush Foundation. “The train meant the world to President Bush. We are grateful to the entire Union Pacific team, especially Chairman and CEO Lance Fritz, for this special gift.”
