Bobert: "Ol' Bobert stands corrected on the date of the Big Bend Tunnels completion. Thanks fir getting my historical wiring fixed on that one."

Actually, some sources give 1869 and others 1870 for the beginning of Big Bend Tunnel construction, and some give 1872 and others 1873 as the completion date.
