Lionel Crecent ltd passenger car light change?

I have 2 Lionel crescent ( 1 passenger, 1 combo) cars. The lights in one (passenger) is considerably brighter than the other. Since the combo was sold as "used" I'm guessing it has different lamps than it should.
I presume the shell comes off but it appeared very tight. I thought I better ask how before I try more force. Thanks; Don

You mean the MPC era baby madison cars? It's very hard to get the roof off them without breaking the tiny tabs that hold it on. In the instruction manual you can get off the Lionel web site they recommend using a thin ruler along the roof edge to pop the tabs and lift off the roof to get at the bulbs. Unless this is really important I recommend leaving well enough alone.

Don,

I'm not sure if those cars are discussed specifically, but check out this "remove roof" thread ...
