This 360° video lets you go behind the scenes of Crossrail's tunnel digging

Isabelle Aron

Curious about Crossrail? You can now get your next fix of transport geekery in 360° form, thanks to this shiny new video.

With the sound off, it's just a pretty sweet 360° montage of footage from the Crossrail tunnel digging. But turn the sound on, and you'll be treated to what the folks behind Crossrail are calling 'Crossrail: The Musical'. Yep, the video is soundtracked with a song about Crossrail, which includes the lyrics: 'eight boring machines dug the tunnels, and each boring machine weighed a thou-saaa-nd tonnes' sung in harmony.

Seriously, plug in your headphones and enjoy.

These are things you only know if you’re a Crossrail engineer
