I also saw the ones on Park Street myself too. I liked the old Third Rail warning signs from the 1940s or something like that.

The warning signs in Maverick station are a little more indicative of the danger, though they're still a bit odd:

CAUTION
THIRD RAIL AND CATENARY WIRE
ARE ALIVE!

That was almost 3 years ago, so they might be different now.

Still there at Maverick and actually get more attention than the other signs.
