On June 8, 1968, a funeral train carried the body of assassinated presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy from New York City to Washington, D.C., via the Pennsylvania Railroad. Paul Fucso, a photographer for Look magazine, rode the train and captured around 2000 images of the thousands of people from many different sections of society who lined the tracks along the route to pay their last respects.
