Maybe they did the 19th century tunnels by starting at one end so that the error was more manageable? If not, I sure would like to know how they did it.

A smple railway near my home was recently surveyed and they found a 15deg curve which was precisely placed on a radius of several tens of miles. The railway was built in the 1840s. I feel humbled by this kind of Real Engineering.

I felt kinda sheltered, not knowing that this tunneling project was even going on. This is persistence! Congrats to the Swiss! Amazing how the quiet and persistent accomplish so much.
