1) loss of Gothardbahn would affect Schöllenenbahn and thus Andermatt
and other resorts would be cut off or only reachable by a lengthy
detour. In contrast to centralized countries such as Britain and
France, where the central government can just shrug that off
(Canfranc line for example), in Switzerland the cantons have a lot of
political leverage and I don't think the cantons concerned would
stand for it.
The MGI would take over the right-of-way and the Schöllenenbahn would (again) have direct connections to international traffic. :-)

Next step would be to get a lane in the Seelisberg tunnel for the meter gauge and you could connect it to the Zentralbahn in Stans. :-) :-)
Far better than the Grimsel Tunnel. :-P
