Last Section of Rail Trail Gets Readied for Stone Dust

September 9, 2017

Saturday, September 9, 2017. Volunteers prepare the trail for the application of stone dust, scheduled for Tuesday, September 12, 2017.

Above, Robert Weidknecht, blows debris off the trail (sometimes using his leaf blower) from Central Street to the Holliston/Sherborn line.

After a section is cleared, the crew marks one edge of the trail applying particle physics String Theory.

Ged Gove demonstrates the technique he modestly calls "holding one end".

Above, Herb Brockert walks softly down the line carrying a big stick and checking that the trail will be 12 feet wide when the dust clears.

Above Mark Kaplan paints a dashed line along the string that will guide the stone dust paving machine (not part of the the current String Theory).

Above, Ken Henderson works with Ged but at the beginning end of the string. Ken has developed his own technique of holding the string in place with his boot, rather than bent over like Ged. Whatever works.
