Big tunnel digger 'Bertha' arrives in Seattle
By Heather Trimm, April 2, 2013
A crew member of the ship carrying Bertha, the giant boring machine, is in red (far right) dwarfed by the 57 1/2-foot cutting face of the machine.
Bertha, the tunnel boring machine, arrives in 41-pieces aboard a ship from Japan Tuesday. It's welcomed by the spray from a Seattle fireboat and a harbor tour cruise by the bow.
