Re: My Route Suggestion of the Old Abandoned LIRR Rockaway Beach Branch

It's called compromising. Think about it, which will be easier to pass off, LRT, or subway? And there will never be a direct one seat ride to JFK. Airtrain killed any hope of that. PANYNJ is not going to give up the system to the MTA. They will not give the MTA the ROW. They will not give the MTA operating rights. They are a bunch of stubborn jackasses who actually got something done while the MTA sat with their thumbs up their asses just staring at their ROW into the airport.

Now, in order for their to be a track connection to the Atlantic Branch, that means the Rockaway would have to be LIRR, so there goes your dream of subway on the line right there(and no, the Atlantic will NEVER become a subway line).
