Bush's casket will be brought to College Station from Houston by train on Dec. 6.

The university also said that the Allen Building at A&M would be closed to faculty, staff and students from Dec. 3 at 8 p.m. through Thursday, Dec. 6. Classes in this building will be relocated. 

According to the AggieNetwork, the train will unload at the railroad crossing at Wellborn Road and George Bush Drive. The funeral procession will travel on George Bush Drive toward the Bush Library Complex.
