PAR power -- OldPaint, NewBlue, and even NS 3471 -- seems to be carrying newly-applied round yellow three-point reminders on the step wells. Is this a Harriman Award issue?

This is an industry general safety issue. It means that while climbing on or off the power, 3 out of four body limbs must be touching the locomotive at all times.

Thanks -- I didn't get close enough to read the fine print and thought it was a reminder for idle, reverser, and independent. The not-so-fine print had a PAR identification on it which is what made me wonder if it was Harriman time.
