1) What's it like to railfan the (M&E) Line and is this the best way to/from Somerville? 2) Is Lake Hopatcong near a train station? (the lake itself)

I personally like the M&E its the 2nd busiest line in the system and you can catch plenty of trains running up and down the line and a great line to see almost any type of equipment MU's,Push-Pull's, diesel sets etc.(I would say Summit is one of the best spots for this) and any station east of that point

 

The best way to/from Somerville is via the Raritan Valley Line which is also a busy line during Rush Hour but nothing compared to the M&E

 

Lake Hopatcong station isn't too far from the lake itself, I know its down landing rd which is the road that goes to the station,but If you plan on going out there I would recomend having other things to do if you railfan this far out on the line due to the fact that service east of Dover is somewhat limited
