For what the City spent on converting the existing Rockaway Line to subway operation, in addition to landfilling the bridges, the whole line should have simply been rebuilt up to White Pot and turned back over to the LIRR.

The book "Change at Ozone Park" said the majority of the cost of restoration was converting to subway operation, not restoring it as a working RR.

But spending money for a bankrupt RR owned by another RR in Philadelphia was not politically possible.
