Small 'Built By Lionel' - Shown in the photo above - The common production variation from 1954 and throughout all 1955 used a smaller printing for the 'Built By Lionel' lettering. This is the most common variation.
Large 'Built By Lionel' - The first few production cycles of 1954 used a larger printing of the letters 'Built By Lionel' (to the left of the opening doors). The earliest versions are rubber-stamped and are extremely difficult to locate.
