Looking at Railway Express Reefers that include road names, in particular, Seaboard Air Line, and wondering if they traveled off line like in Southern and ACL passenger trains as well as on the SAL.

    Yes, most express cars were operated by the REA as a pool, so cars certainly went off-line, though their owners were supposed to maintain and repair them. That of course would mean they came home occasionally.
