In 1968 Magnum photographer Paul Fusco accompanied the body of Robert F. Kennedy from New York City to its final resting place in Arlington Cemetery, near Washington DC. Transported by train, the coffin was placed in the last of twenty-two cars and elevated so that it was visible through the large observation windows. But it was what lay outside the train that interested Fusco most; the track-side mourners who, silent, curious and patient, waited to pay their respects. A uniquely profound record, RFK Funeral Train is an oblique chronicle of the tragedy and trauma of Kennedy's assassination.
