I've been wondering about this.
Is "come off" used when you are outside of something?

1. Come off the train immediately.
(I'm outside the train)

2. Come out of the box.
(I'm outside the box.)

I think that "get out" can be used whether you are inside or outside of something.

Am I right about this?

Thank you!

    I think your logic works. Although one might possibly say "Come off the train" if you were on the train with someone else and wanted them to get off with you.
