    That is a really classy and good looking paint job, actually, presidential or no!

    As said earlier, Kato did that in the past. It's going for a premium now on ebay...over $300! :eek:

    It's kinda cool how this train will be in the national spotlight. I'm quite sure 99% of non-railfans will assume that 4141 was just painted up in the past few days instead of back in 2005. :)

    As a kid, I remember watching Sen. Robert Kennedy’s funeral train on TV in 1968. It operated along PC electrified lines in the northeast and inevitably, someone climbed atop a boxcar for a better view. You can guess the rest. The guy touched an overhead wire and was instantly introduced to 11,000 VAC and died on the spot.

    Part of what makes it such a classy paint scheme is that it's painted in Air Force One's colors.

    Looks like KATO announced a re-run of this 4141 and the 1943!

    Onizukachan posted that it would be interesting to see what the consist is. From what I saw on the national broadcast news, it had an open platform observation car running "backward" (i.e., open platform in front) just behind the baggage car carrying the casket. The dignitaries boarded and departed the train from that platform. Other cars looked like typical UP yellow passenger cars, including some dome cars, and those followed the "special" cars that were painted especially for this occasion.

    Watched the loco run this afternoon from Houston to the Bush Library pulling the funeral train. They had a camera mounted on 4141 and somewhere a mic was picking up the engine sounds and the airhorns for the whole journey. The footage was full of great shots of the roofs on all the equipment as they were following the train by helicopter.

    Car numbers from the head end were: 119, 9005, 5011, 1610, 302, 9004, 101, 5769, 9009, 8008, and 2066. I'm sure someone here can crossreference the numbers to the car names.

    Was more interested in the lead locomotive than the trains purpose in that clip.

    I asl took a lot of screen shots. A lit presidential seal will be a big challenge.
