We have "shitters" (a technical term) inside the tunnel boring machine. In the old days, we use to put a toilet seat above the conveyer belt that took the rock out of the tunnel haha.

The machine in Connecticut can tunnel roughly 130 feet in 24 hours on a good day with three shifts working a day. The type of ground affects this speed a lot. It weighs approx 300+ tons.

A TBM operator starts at low six figures. But so do many construction jobs that require experience.
