the eastern shore of N. J including the Baltimore &
Ohio, Lackawanna, Erie, Jersey Central. Lehigh Val-
ley, West Shore, Pa., and the Philadelphia & Read-
ing, nine trunk lines in all, the traffic of which will
be carried to Brooklyn through a large tunnel, which constructed oil' land, of steel, in sections. After
the bottom of the bay is dredged out, making a
ditch, the tunnel will be sunk and the sections
bolted together at the bottom of the bay. The steel
tunnel will be of two large tubes, enclosed in a large
steel case and filled with concrete. Its construction
will require 336,000,000 tons of steel, and it will have

vards of concrete; a weight per lineal foot of 513.000
lbs., and 8 lbs. per foot, allowed to overcome the
buoyancy of the tunnel, which will be made like a
steel boat with bulkheads in the end to allow it to
be towed to its place in the bay, and then sunk by
adding the concrete. The total cost will be $10,-
000 000, and the cost of the land for landing tunnel
$3 000,000. Has been engaged for past three years in
