9. See a 9/11 PATH Train that Was Recovered from Ground Zero

On September 11, 2016, two PATH cars from the train that was found beneath the World Trade Center site opened the public for the first time at two different trolley museums: The Shore Line Trolley Museum in Connecticut and the Kingston Trolley Museum in New York. The train was ordered to be evacuated before the Twin Towers fell. Most of the train was found destroyed, but two cars remained intact and were given to the two trolley museums in 2015. The advertisements that were present on 9/11 are still there as well as the signage on the front of the train, that says “WTC.”  Shaun Winton, then director of the Shore Line Trolley Museum, told us on a visit that coffee cups and other items were found inside – literally abandoned in the rush to evacuate.
