Once again your logic fails, but I'll but it firmly back in place.

1. None of the Woodhaven Blvd routes even crack the top 10 busiest routes. On Woodhaven Blvd they run a max of 18 buses per hour during the rush or a bus every 3 minutes. If we took that into trains, all the tracks would need are 2 full length trains per rush hour to handle the entire rush hour crowd.

2. As for that, its common knowledge, but the BMT and IND could've easily brought the line and its rights before hand and converted them into Rapid Transit Service. They chose not too, take a gander as to why? Read my first point.

3, It't not worth the cost to reactivate the line when bus service is sufficient enough to handle the crowd.
