The character of Phoebe Snow as a promotional mascot dates from about 1900: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoebe_Snow_(character) .
DL&W received series 51400-51749 from AC&F in November 1944 with "Route of Pheobe Snow" lettering, according to data and a builder's photo with an article by Ed Hawkins in the July 1991 RMJ. Whether this was was the first use of the slogan this way is unknown to me.
