Re: Best Article I've Read on Reasons to Reactivate the Rockaway Beach Line

While we may classify it as a "railfans' dream," the fact is that the convention center was brought up by the governor himself who is probably not a railfan, not to mention some local politicians in the area who are probably not railfans per se either. Also, does anyone know the last time the city and MTA publicly stated that there are no plans to resurrect the line? If the governor's plans and those recently publicized by the local politicians were made known after the last negative city and MTA statement, both the city and MTA may have no choice but get with the program and give the rebuilding of the line for rapid transit service a realistic evaluation.
