To top off a long story, a practical question. Does anyone know for sure, *with reference to sources*, whether it's legal to:
(i) take pictures of HBLR trains while standing on public property (I'm rather sure I know the answer! But still...);
(ii) do same while standing on publicly accessible NJT property, like station platforms (trespassing is a separate and clear matter, of course)?

Unless you're a lawyer in the state of NJ, I don't think we have anyone who can give you an answer and be correct. I bet it would have been easier to challenge were you actually *charged* with something. I am of the mind that if this happens to another person, don't submit to a search or seizure of your property. You might get charged. But until these ridiculous things get in front of a court they're not going to go away. IANAL.
