A tunnel designed to smuggle drugs from Tijuana, Mexico, to San Diego is equipped with electricity, ventilation and a rail system, U.S. authorities said Thursday, making it one of the more sophisticated secret passages discovered along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Authorities seized more than 8 tons of marijuana and 325 pounds of cocaine in connection with the discovery, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said. Three suspects were in U.S. custody.
The tunnel links warehouses in Tijuana and San Diegos Otay Mesa industrial area. The area is filled with nondescript warehouses, making it easier to conceal trucks being loaded with drugs.

They thought it was the extension from a ride in Disneyland, so they didn’t think much about it.

I’d think once you’ve dug the tunnel, putting in the rail system is comparatively easy.

I wonder if this will interrupt the community agitator’s choom and blow supply.
