This paper provides a memo based on an article and a second research piece about the construction of the Hoosac tunnel in Massachusetts. The memo begins with the idea of tunneling in 1845, and then having the first train run through the longest tunnel of its time in 1875.

From the Paper:

"At a time when construction of tunnels is no longer news, when the innovation of the "Chunnel" that enormous railway dual tube under the English Channel linking France and Britain is an everyday "commute, one can refer to the innovation of rock-tunneling technology which originated in the middle of the nineteenth Century- an innovation this article clearly ascribes to Alva Crocker.
