Union Pacific 4141 is an EMD SD70ACe locomotive owned by Union Pacific. Its paint scheme is based on that of Air Force One and "George Bush 41" is painted on the sides in honor of the George Bush Presidential Library based on George H. W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States.[1]

The road number 4141 was previously occupied by an SD70M, which has since been renumbered to 3778.

The unit was removed from active service due to reduced traffic levels stemming from financial crisis of 2007–2010 and was stored at UP's North Little Rock shop. The locomotive was briefly removed from storage in 2012 and made a round trip from North Little Rock to Chicago, and was then immediately returned to storage. As of September 2017, it is wrapped for long term storage at Jenks Facility and shows no sign of returning to service.[2] As of February 2018, 4141 has been moved back outside after receiving cosmetic touch ups to its paint.[3]
