Where do you sit at for all that time? Once a few years ago I found a spot behind a warehouse but the cops came and told me to leave. Didnt really like the union station to much. Would like to watch this line more often though

I was at the Union Train station with a few friends, I have a letter from NJT saying i'm allowed to film trains at any and all stations with a tripod and all, just as long as i'm out of the way of passengers. I got there just before sunrise at 6:15AM and left on the 10:03PM train to Newark.
