UP 4141, the locomotive that pulled the funeral train for former President George H.W. Bush is on a tour of the Union Pacific system and is shown trailing 1943 on train MPRAS. The SD70ACe, features a paint scheme which mimics Air Force One.
Members of the Mt. Hope-Funks Grove Fire Protection District worked with the photographer to pose fire apparatus with the two specially painted units.
A very professional relief crew is moving the train South to St. Louis, the next UP terminal where the unit will be displayed for employees and their families.

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
