EAST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– Sunday marks 15 years since the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. The state, country and world remembering that day and honoring the victims
At the Shoreline Trolley Museum in East Haven, a subway car that was at a station below the Twin Towers when they collapsed is now open to the public. Path Car 745 was dedicated at noon. It’s been at the museum since last year.
The 9/11 museum held on to it then decided they didn’t have room. It was offered to the New York Transit Museum but they decided they couldn’t take it either.
“They had called us and we immediately recognized it’s significance because it’s not often you can take a simple, ordinary subway car and make it, and just realize what a connection it’s had with such a memorable, tragic event that how could we say no,” said Bill Wall, Shoreline Trolley Museum, President Emeritus.
When the planes hit the station was evacuated. No one there was killed.
