Classification light rules (where used, in timetable/train order territory)
were the same for freight or passenger service.  Again: green for a
following section, white for an unscheduled train, or no lights for a
regularly scheduled train (or last of mutiple sections).  As Ed King pointed
out, most roads stopped requiring class lights in CTC territory,
since--under the rules--signal indication superceeded every other "rights of
trains" issues (class, direction, schedule, etc.).  So sure....a J could
have had class lights illuminated somewhere in freight service, unless
(according to Ed's observations) it was in CTC territory.
