Image: Tito traveled the former Yugoslavia in his "blue train" promoting his program of Brotherhood and Unity city by city. The people would mass along the tracks or at the train stations to greet him and shake his hand. When he died, his coffin was placed on his train which then traveled throughout Yugoslavia passing crowds of mourners who lined the tracks and waited in train stations decorated with his portrait and sombre banners.(credit: licensed from Radio Television Serbia, RTS - All rights reserved)
