PATH Train Car at World Trade Center on 9/11 Finds New Home in Connecticut Museum

The newest exhibit at the Shore Line Trolly Museum in New Haven, Connecticut is an important piece of New York City history from the tragic events of 9/11.

745 was at the front of a seven-car PATH train that left Hoboken, N.J., at 8:42 a.m. on the Sept. 11, 2001. Pulling into the World Trade Center station’s Track 3 at 8:52 that same morning, passengers on the car may have had no idea about the events happening overhead. Six minutes before its arrival, a jetliner struck the WTC’s North Tower. Everyone was evacuated from the station, and Car 745 wasn’t uncovered until days later.

After sitting for nearly 15 years in a JFK Airport hangar, the PATH car was recently donated to the museum and has been left in its orignal state.
