because Lionel feels the same as many people in the 3 rail hobby....they just love all the lights and sounds whether they are accurate or not. Kinda the reason this and several other threads have started recently. Better to have them with the ability to turn them off, we never had that ability before. I went in a cut or unplug a lot of lights.
Just because your car has a dome light doesn't mean you ever have to drive with it on but better to have it in case you dropped your ________ in the dark so you can find it.
Like Hot Water says, get rid of the green, at least go with clear, but we were all told they are no longer accepting input from their customers!
