For.....

Scenery
Station Design
Cultural Diversity
Different Cities
Skyline Views or Town Views
Speed
Fares

- My Favorite line is the Northeast Corridor between Secaucus JCT and New Brunswick , all the different cities and towns you pass. The Diversity of those cities and Skylines. You can see Newark , JC and Elizabeth's Skylines form this line. The different stations are also great , vary form town to town no 2 are the same. The Speed is fast and the fares are decent. Also you can the Industrial power of the state and the quiet Marshes.

I really like the NE Corridor line, because when I get on those trains, they bring me to my home station. I hate all the rest where I need to get off and wait for a return-trip to Newark, or take a taxi to the station I was originally supposed to reach (home). Those lines are terrible, IMO.

I like the Newark one, because it connects to Newark Liberty International Airport, and I love airplanes much more than trains. For long trips, airplanes blow trains out of the water in terms of price and time-saving. I am an airplane fanner.

Most people aren't going to have a "favorite" train line. The overwhelming majority of people know the line that they have to ride, mostly to commute to & from work or school, and are almost completely unfamiliar with the rest of the NJT system. It is, after all, primarily a commuter rail system.

My favorite is the one that gets me from where I am to where I need to be- other that that parameter, the rest of it is irrelevant.
