What are the colored lights for above the number boards? Remote control operation?

The lights are called Locomotive classification lights. Obsolete signaling used in north america mainly by Canada. White indicated an "extra" train not shown in the timetable. Green indicated that, while the train displaying the lights was a regularly scheduled one, a second section was following behind it. Red indicated the end of a train. A train, be it a single engine, a group of engines, or an engine(s) with cars, must have a marker on the rear end. In the (relatively rare) situations when the last element in a train would be a locomotive, the red lights would be lit. Source
