I'm supportive of reactivating the Rockaway Line(and many others as well).

But I don't think the Queens Boulevard subway could handle yet another interterchange, and even more trains and pax than it already has. Let' remember that when the Rockaway connection was planned as part of the IND, the 11th Street and 63rd Street connections didn't exist, and probably weren't conceived.

What about simply redtroing the LIRR service and charge a City Fare? Just as people pay extra to use the LIRR from Flushing and (forgive me) Express Buses, I bet enough people would use such an LIRR service to make it worthwhile. Just 'cuase it died 50 years ago doesn't men it'd be no good today...
