The third is a solid orange rectangle. It says "PENALTY" and then has a blank for filling in "Home Route."I'll take a stab at this one.
Back when perdiem for freight cars was starting there was an increasing penalty for hanging on to empty cars. Before perdiem the cars were on a mileage basis and roads would not send empty cars home since it would cost them the mileage fees.
I have some reference somewhere and will dig in need be.
