O42 Tubular Track with Gray Ties?

Purchased some Lionel O42 track recently and noticed on the underside that the ties are painted Gray.

Is this something that Lionel used to do on the O42 track or is this something recent? 

 

I have no problem with it, in fact I like the Gray because it makes it easier to differentiate immediately between O31 track (which has 3 ties like the O42) when one is putting down track on a temporary basis without having compare tracks side-by-side in a pile of a couple dozen pieces of track.  Also prevents finding out after the fact why your curve didn’t line up correctly with the straight.
