Unlike other engines on the rails, Bush 4141 is the only one to have ever been driven by its namesake and a former U.S. President.
Union Pacific says while they are honored to participate in the funeral procession for Bush, they want to give people some important safety reminders:
- Only cross railroad tracks at designated crossings. Designated crossings are marked by a sign, lights or a gate.
- Look both ways before crossing railroad tracks. Remember, trains can come from either direction at any time.
- Keep a safe distance between you and the tracks when a train approaches. Trains are three feet wider than the rails.
- Avoid distractions including loud music, texting or talking on cell phones. Look up and listen for train horns.
