The extra trains needed for the link would find use if the connection were later mothballed or demolished once Euston has been completed, as the core frequency would increase and more trains would be needed to then extend the 24-32tph core to Old Oak Common. In any case the total cost is not going to be £1bn and even then, if it simplifies the reconstruction of Euston that would have massive cost saving impacts on its own.
