When i hired on conrail, some of the yards still kerosene switch targets, yellow& green is what they were, or yellow& green metal banners, some main line targets used red&green,, But i know of a few local steel mills in the pittsburgh area, they always used red & green in thier yards, also the steel mills used purple & yellow on the derail targets, on conrail those were always blue & yellow.
 
Also in the main conrail yard at conway all the pumatic switches on the hump had high visable yellow & green switch indicators electric light bulbs, they removed all of them.
