A few hours ago, UP posted across their various social media platforms that they intend to donate SD70ACe 4141 (the George Bush 41 unit) to the George & Barbara Bush Foundation.

For those not keen on Facebook, etc., here's what's been said
Quote:
The UP No. 4141 George Bush Locomotive traveled today to a trackside celebration near the George H.W. Bush Presidential Center at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. Union Pacific announced it is working with the George & Barbara Bush Foundation to donate the engine for permanent display next to the library, museum and burial site of the 41st U.S. president.

I had heard this was the intention from the day that the unit was unveiled, guess this is just a formalization.
