This week, I went underground with some mates from work to see the newest train tunnel being built underneath Zürich.

We entered the tunnel through a big hole.

The rear end of the front of the drilling machine. It is currently in "wet mode" drilling through gravel surrounded by groundwater. This picture is taken underneath Niederdorf.

The patroness of the tunneller happens to be also the one of my business.

Is that St Barbara? She was my grandad's (a miner) favourite saint.

Ooh, I've come over all teary.
