The above example lettered "Little Trains" is a TYCO release from the pre-Red Box Era of the 1960s.  The TYCO name is introduced by Mantua in the early '50s and TYCO Little Trains was used to promote the then-new line.  The slogan "Little Trains" found itself on models, as demonstrated on the above 1950s TYCO example.
