Is it safe to assume these didn't venture far from home rails, and would be of little or no interest to a modeler of Southern Pacfiic's Coast Line? Or might an express car have ended up on the Coast Mail in anything resembling a regular basis?

Both cars have the "shadow keystone" logo introduced in 1954. I'm trying to stick to 1953.

FYI,  The Amarillo Railroad Museum has Red
Caboose X29's with patch
panels both the Merchandise scheme (white banner, 12
numbers) and express
boxcars (six numbers) in the shadow keystone scheme.  www.amarillorailmuseum.com.
