People think that all they have to do is cut down the trees and lay some new tracks, and the whole thing is done.
While the ROW exists, it would be like completely rebuilding a line from scratch. All the roots of those trees have compromised the ROW, and have to be removed. The bridges all rebuilt. They were never designed to have roots in them from trees. Trees can rip apart the best of concrete, and all you need is one. And there are thousands.
This is not to say it's prohibitive, just that it's much more involved than people realize.


But it's all possible. The most challenging part of any project is obtaining the ROW.
