All photos in this post were taken by me Monday 8/22/2016 in Painted Post, NY. i waited a few more hours, but neither NS nor the B&H resumed the interchange during daylight. It was completed either after dark or the following day. (I'm not mad -that's just the way RRing goes sometimes.) As always, a big thanks goes out to the employees of the B&H for the friendliness and professionalism.
