Hudson and Manhattan

The PATH was created in 1962 to take over operations of the H&M system when it went bankrupt. The take over by the Port Authority was part of the deal that allowed the PA to demolish the Hudson Terminal buildings and construct the World Trade Center.

Along with neglected right of way, most of the car operating at the takeover were built before 1930 as classes A-J. The newest cars at the takeover were the Class K & PRR MP-52 totaling 50 cars. These were one of the first successful subway type cars with air conditioning.


Unfortuneately with the overreacting to the WTC terrorism, the PATH has virtually banned photography on the property. See the PATH part of this document.
So don't look at these photos!
