The funeral at the Washington National Cathedral, set to be attended by a wide array of former presidents and politicians, including Donald Trump, will last 90 minutes.

4141 George Bush Locomotive, which was unveiled October 18, 2005, was dedicated to honor the nation's 41st president.

On Sunday, students, staff and visitors had flocked to Bush's presidential library on the campus of Texas A&M University, with thousands of mourners paying their respects at a weekend candlelight vigil at a nearby pond and others contributing to growing flower memorials at Bush statues at both the library and a park in downtown Houston.

Bush will be buried alongside wife Barbara Bush, who died at 92 in April, and their daughter, Robin, who died in 1953 from leukemia when she was 3 years old.
