I want to remove the frosted windows on my Lionel Strasburg rtr set passenger cars and install full interiors so you ccan I can then place actual passengers inside. I believe these are referred to by Lionel as baby madison type/size cars. Anyone know a source for ready made interiors and/or kits which would easily retrofit into these car's shells without major modifications being necessary? Please don't mention kitbashing them myself for I unfortunately have neither the time nor skill level to kitbash interiors for these cars. Thanks in advance.

The most recent versions of the Baby Madisons have interiors and clear windows. You might check on line at the Lionel site for parts for recent Madisons, and see if they're available.  Good idea to check with the Train Doctor at Brasseur's, too, if that doesn't work.

I wonder if it wouldn't be cheaper to buy the new cars and just sell the old ones?  I'm guessing that buying significant parts like that will get expensive.

Taking a quick look at the Lionel parts site, it doesn't look like interiors are available for the Baby Madisons. Actually, it seems like many of the parts for these cars are unavailable, although the clear window strip parts are showing. Looks like the only option may in line with gunrunnerjohn's comment - have to buy new cars to get the parts.
