A laser could engrave the lettering onto whatever you decide to use for a tarp.

   I have a VCR tape that I
haven't watched in awhile, and I noticed a flat car
load, on the Pennsy, of a dining car, This is one of the
small early diners made by the Ward & Dickenson Co. It
fit fully on a 50' flat. The load was covered with what
looks like a canvas tarp and the lettering looks like it was
applied directly on the tarp. It stated  "Another
Dining car built by the Ward & Dickenson Company Silver
Creek,NY." I thought this would make a nice load as the
diner would not be seen and could be carved from a block of
balsa.    My question is....does
anyone have any suggestions how to go about lettering a
scale tarp like this? I had thought maybe using a
lightweight craft paper for the tarp. Dry transfers?
Sealing?   
 Thanks,       Bud
