Double-fisted Spike- Puller

Saturday was a warm and sunny day for our Ceremonial Spike-Pull and Walking Tour of the Mascoma River Greenway. We started with lunch, an update on trail progress, and a presentation by Ed Ashey on Lebanon’s railroad history, then took to the trail with crowbars and pliers for removing spikes and date nails. Many of us took home souvenir spikes and date nails stamped with the year of our birth.  The event was a celebration of the official abandonment of the tracks up to mile marker 140, an important step in the creation of our Greenway trail.
