The Railway Man
The cutting was planned by Japanese engineers and was to be cut using manual labour. In face ,there were two main cuttings at Konyu – a shorter one of 73 metres length and about 25 metres deep and a longer cutting about 450 metres long and 8 metres deep.
The cutting here was know by several names ,originally Konyu Cutting and then later variously 'Hammer and Tap' because of the constant sound of 'hammer and tap' crews drilling holes for explosives and the now better known Hellfire Pass ,so named after the prisoners of war were kept working long into the night by the lights of fires and torches.
