You're incorrect Paul because its in the city there wont be any parking facilities. So take the cost out the list, removing trees isnt expensive, and not all bridges have to be replaced. Alot were overbuilt, they might get replaced but most need some patchwork and fresh paint. Signals and track installation will be the most expensive. The city owns the ROW so property acquisition will be easy and any power or substations can be built above the ROW. Also most stations can be built as single island stations with simple designs to keep cost low and land acquiring to a minimum.
