George H.W. Bush 4141 Train Arrives at Its Final Destination in College Station
With Deep South's help, Union Pacific's historic George H.W. Bush 4141 locomotive arrived at its final destination in College Station, TX. Using two 500-ton Liebherr LTM 1400-7.1 cranes, Deep South lifted the 315,000-pound locomotive off the track, where it will be permanently featured at Bush's presidential library and museum at Texas A&M University. We're proud to have helped out on this special project!
