Rubbersheet points to line feature

Hello,

I have a large series of points (originally stations along a station axis) which I would like to rubbersheet to a secondary line feature. Unfortunately, because the original axis was not particularly straight to begin with, creating perpendicular station lines to the secondary line feature did not work as it was some distance removed, by which point station lines were no longer parallel (i.e., criss-crossed or were uneven distance apart along the secondary line).

I was thinking maybe I could transpose only "major" stations and rubbersheet the stations in between along the secondary line. Problem I forsee though is that the secondary line is not always straight between these major stations. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks
