Yes, it's not a prototype car but what years did the UP start using this type scheme on their 40' boxes?

I'm not seeing any photo or link or other reference to the scheme you're asking about.

I have a lettering diagram that corroborates what Mike said at least about the start date.  11-11-49 "Serves All The West" was changed to "Be Specific Ship Union Pacific".
