George, it depends on what was used to make the lettering. Many times, you can use Iso Alcohol and a Q Tip to rub it off. Maybe you can find Floquil's ELO which is roughly the same thing. Also, brake fluid applied with Q Tip may work. These methods can take off the paint underneath the lettering, if that happens, I would just immerse the whole plastic superstructure in brake fluid and let the paint disolve away. Then rattle can the model with nice new paint.
OR-as many small RR's did...paint the lettering black and apply new lettering over the old. This method is something I might do since I like hand me down equipment on funky railways.

Have fun & run that train!
