The Hoosac Tunnel for those unfamiliar is a 4 ¾ mile long railroad tunnel which is at present part of the Springfield Terminal Guilford rail line (district 4).

It is blasted from under the Hoosac Mountain which lies in between the Deerfield River on the east and the Hoosic River on the west. The five-mile-long Hoosac Tunnel's eastern entrance emerges in Florida.

The tunnel was designed to connnect commerce in Boston with the rest of the nation by breaking through the massive mountain that hampered its path. The only thing that stood in the T&GRR’s way was Hoosac Mountain. The path the tunnel would follow was chosen by economy, which is especially interesting when one considers the ultimate cost of the project.

More on that later. The tunnel’s route was selected because it was where the mountain is the thinnest--just under five miles. George M. Mowbray, author of Tri-nitro-glycerin, as applied in the Hoosac tunnel, and to submarine, on LibraryThing.
