A More Favorable Signal

For the past couple of days, we have been delayed a few minutes on the NJTransit train.

Usually the conductor announces over the P.A.:

Ladies and gentlemen, we're currently being held at a stop signal, once we receive a more favorable signal, we'll be on our way.

This gave me pause.

"A more favorable signal."

Ok, fair enough. And eloquent, I might add.

But, here's where I'm confused: What are the favorable choices, besides Green?

Are there more options? Is there a new system of lights, sounds, pictures and phrases to help us get over the Passaic?

One can only I did.

Favorable signals:
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Taupe
  • Hello gorgeous!
  • Nice weather we're having...
  • Did you lose weight?
  • No nukes
  • ::big thumbs up::
  • ::bucket of wings::
  • Get a move on, tubs.
  • Pass the dutchie on the left hand side.
  • ::theme from Bonanza::
  • Can-can girls
  • Picture of cartoon train wearing running shoes
  • ::whip crackle::
  • Zepplin laser light show
  • Guiliani
