Volunteers unload each carload of rocks into the gully in about 15 minutes. They then laid a 10-foot line of rocks in the gully. The rocks will prevent rushing water from cutting into the rail bed during heavy rain storms. Crew members, from left to right, are Bill Wilde, 47, Shingle Springs; Alex Wilde, 22, Cameron Park; Hank Stiles, Fairmount speeder operator, 62, Rancho Cordova; Keith Berry, EDWRF president and project manager, 62, El Dorado; and Jacob Karoly, 19, Diamond Springs.
