Todd Skogen, a former Union Pacific electrician, saw the vehicle firsthand and shared his photos with CBS 2.

According to Union Pacific's website, the George Bush 4141 is traveling to some Union Pacific facilities to give employees a chance to see it. A statement on the company's website says:

"It was our honor and privilege to participate in President Bush's final journey, and to provide an opportunity for Americans to participate in that experience. While there may be future public displays, none are planned at this time out of respect for the late president and his family."
