I was through there last weekend on my way to (and back from) Olean, and got to see even more on the way to the Strykersville fireman's picnic on Sunday. I'm impressed with the work, though tongue-in-cheek, I would only call those tracks "straight-ish." Vastly improved, and I'm sure some of those kinks were impossible to get out, but my OCD is kicking in.

Bet they can rocket through there now.

Any more recent photos of the track rehab from Curriers to N. Java?

^I'll try to take some on a sunny day.

The contractor finished in August.

The speed limit is still 10 m.p.h.
