Why the yellow paint outlining the snowplow?

Looks like #6222 has it's grease paint on for the occasion... BTW, what exactly is a "ride car"?

+Metro North & LIRR require foreign power that runs on their territory to have their pilots cut and marked in yellow paint for third rail clearence. +The rider car is used as a safe shoving platform for the conductor during a reverse move. CSX employees are not allowed to ride Circus train flats.

Thanks for the explanation. Now that you explain I noticed the notches in the plow along with the paint. Don't have a lot of that here in Arkansas...
