I’m more hopeful today. I got the paint off the litho. I used Goof Off. Not for the faint of heart as it is an aggressive solvent. Mineral Spirits was taking too much rubbing and the friction was damaging the litho.
The trucks were sloppily painted black from the outside. They were originally tan.
The ladders must have been painted black too. They were originally brass. The brass is gone now except for a few spots.
There is even paint on the journals!
