9/11 path train comes to the East Haven Trolley Museum

EAST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– Firefighters, police officers, civil service members and civilians are gathering in East Haven Thursday afternoon to salute a piece of 9/11 history.

On Wednesday, a New Jersey path train, that was one of just two train cars that survived the terror attacks at the World Trade Center in tact, arrived to Connecticut.

The cars were protected by a cast iron tunnel when the towers came down. No passengers were found inside the car during excavation.

A parade kicked off the event at the corner of Hemingway Avenue and River Street, which proceeded down River Street to the Trolley Museum where a path train will now be placed

News 8’s Ali Reed talked to those who attended the event in the video above.
