I think the major costs would be pretty much the same be it use for a rapid transit line under NYCT or as a line run by the LIRR. With NYCT, it wouldn't be unusual for the line to be also hooked up for CBTC, which equals continued cost, plus all the other previous points made, not to mention that major factor which shuttered the route as a route to JFK from Manhattan, the ever so famous (or imfamous) NIMBYs.

I think this line ever returning to service is nothing more than a railfan fantasy, plain and simple.
