Never mind demolishing it - they should reinstate the line to muswell hill. All
the trackbed is still in situ from there back to highgate sidings and putting
track back down and restoring highgate high level station would cost buttons in
comparisons to white elephants such as crossrail. I'm pretty sure a shuttle
service to and from highgate to catch the main northern line would be pretty
popular given the current alternative is the bus to wood green.


So a couple of hundred, at most, commuters a day compared to the white
elephant carrying tens of thousands.
