(Late) Update on the Goshen College Train Tunnel

Students at Goshen College don't
have to do this any more.

Back in 2010 I wrote about how students at Goshen (Ind.) College had a unique excuse for being late for class--they had to wait for a train.

No more; last year the College built a tunnel underneath the Norfolk Southern Marion Branch, a busy line (8-10 trains a day) that bisects the campus.

The new tunnel.

The tunnel was installed in a single day in July, 2102. It was officially opened in November. And now, a year later, I finally got around to noting it on this blog.

Even with the tunnel, Goshen College is the kind of place I'd want to study (if I had a chance to go back and be a student again). Who wouldn't like to be at a school where trains run through the campus?
