This line also seen it last trains a lot more recently than the Rockaway Line has (1980 for the High Line as opposed to the late 50s for the Rockaway Line), has not been overgrown even half as much as the Rockaway Line has. And again, the structures are not just the only things that need to be addressed, there is also the numerous eroded, washed out spots long the line where roadbed has been lost, the roots of the very large trees on the line also help to undermine the roadbed, plus the whole new bridge with abutments needed to cross over the LIRR Montauk Branch, much needs to be addressed.
