Is it directed in 2 directions? Possibly for a railway or road, so that it can be seen from afar that someone is working on the track

About what I found
In case of 3 aspect signal (3 colours Red - Orange - Green) Orange light indicates - Caution

This signal allows a train to proceed past the signal with caution (at reduced speed), being prepared to stop at the next signal. It can mean that the next signal is at Danger, or that the track ahead has speed restriction

The lights displayed by a signal have three properties: aspect, name, and indication. The aspect describes what is displayed, e.g., red over green. The name is the formal name classification for that signal, e.g., diverging clear. The indication is the instruction conveyed by the signal.

A train crew seeing a signal with a yellow aspect will understand they are nearing an approach signal, which conveys an indication that might mean "proceed prepared to stop before your train passes the next signal; trains exceeding 35 mph must immediately reduce to that speed." (There's more to it than simply "the next signal is red.")

Given the bi-directional shrouded lenses, guessing this was not intended for aviation or marine use. Probably a railroad marker light. With the 20lb propane tank, guessing the output would have been comparable to a normal electric signal with probably a 6 day run time and the added bonus of getting the marker light a bit higher up.
