How common was it for these cars to travel off line? I have a photo of a C of G freight train at Perry Ga in Oct 1952 with one of the Merchandise Service X29's in it.

Correct, This was an expedited on-line LCL service that included trucks for pick-up and delivery. Cars were painted in a special paint scheme.
Phase 1 - Aluminum band, white trim, circle keystone (8/47-1/50)
Phase 2 - white band, circle keystone (1/50-5/54)
Phase 3 - white band, shadow keystone (5/54-11/57)
