C&O Baggage-Express Car No. 314 built by Pullman Car and Mfg. Co., 1929On the evening of March 31, 1969, America's last Presidential funeral train-that of Dwight D. Eisenhower-rolled sadly out of Washington on its way to Abilene, Kansas. Its ten-car consist was undecorated in any way, and near its front, the body of the military hero and former President rode in this ordinary baggage car. It was the way any common soldier would have gone home for burial—and the way "Ike" wanted it to be.
