On Thursday, the body of the late President George H.W. Bush traveled via train from a funeral service at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston to the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum at Texas A&M University, where Bush was buried alongside his wife Barbara.

The ceremony for the arrival of the casket in College Station was solemn and formal below cloudy, rainy skies. But what you may have missed as the Union Pacific train took its journey were the thousands and thousands of people who lined the tracks as it passed through towns and countryside to honor the 41st president in their own special ways.
