There’s this new TV show on the History Channel called Sandhogs. No, we’re not being paid to write this, so everyone relax.
This is a whole reality show is about a crew of guys that dig massive tunnels for a living. Makes it sound easy, but it’s not. They are digging a huge water tunnel to for the Croton Filtration plant in the Bronx.
Anyway, the show reminded me of what it must be like to dig the Second Avenue Subway line. I’d imaging the diameter of the tube is much bigger because it’s go to fit trains, but it must be kind of the same.
The city is supposed to bring in a TBM to dig the tunnel. Honestly, I have no idea if there’s even one here yet. I haven’t heard anything about the TBM’s in at least a year. In light of all the construction delays, I guess it doesn’t really matter.
An interesting show for guys that liked to play with toy trucks and diggers when they were kids.
