East Haven museum dedicates 9/11 subway car

EAST HAVEN — The Shore Line Trolley Museum in Connecticut is preparing to officially open its display of a subway car that was pulled virtually undamaged from the World Trade Center rubble after Sept. 11.

A dedication ceremony was held at the East Haven museum Sunday on the 15th anniversary of the attacks.

PATH car 745 was part of a seven-car train that left Hoboken, New Jersey, filled with passengers at 8:42 a.m. on the day of the attacks, only four minutes before the first plane crashed into the north tower. It arrived at about 8:52 a.m. at the PATH station under the World Trade Center.

The station was evacuated and the train was abandoned. No one was in the station when the twin towers collapsed.
