1. The line wouldn't have been abandoned

The line was not suited towards rapid transit, but rather, commuter railroad, and that was the problem, as the line is ridiculous as a commuter railroad line running a few trains a day. It should be a rapid transit line with many trains per hour.

2. The MTA, the IND or the BMT could've easily brought the line after it was abandoned and built a line but they chose not too.

The BMT was dying in the 50's. In that era people were looking towards cars and roads, and not for railroads and trains. In fact they were looking to get rid of the latter.
