Also, does anyone know the last time the city and MTA publicly stated that there are no plans to resurrect the line?

Wasn't this not discussed but a few weeks ago here???

Again, I'd love nothing more than to see a rail line return to service, but the fact is there are not actual plans to reinstate service, it was commented barely a month ago that there are no plans to reinstate service on the line, and the costs of rebuilding this line would be quite high, and there is no real certainty the ridership will be there, and if it gets tied into the LIRR, the question will there be room for more trains serving this line, and will the equipment to cover the additional service to this renewed line be available??

Yes, it is simply a railfan dream, one of the many constantly brought up here.
