Going to add LED lighting to Lionel Pullman Passenger cars (6-19068 +6 of the same car different name).

I have the lighting  regulator(s) and considering using 5 V 3528 LED Bulbs or maybe the 2835.

Is 5 volt enough or should 12 V be used?

The cars are pulled by a VL Hudson and powered with a 180 Lionel brick.

Thanks for the advice / comments

gunrunnerjohn and stan2004:

I am using the LED Lighting Regulator that Gunrunnerjohn makes/sells, got them a couple of days ago, actually from Hennings Trains , great folks, called me this AM to be sure I received what was needed.

This volt question was asked because I did not know and wanted to be sure. 12 Volt LED strips will be purchased  and work will begin in a few days.

What LED would be best 3528, 2835 or 5050

Thanks again for the help.

I use the 3528, but the 2835 are the same size.  The 5050 will work, but it's overkill, I can get the cars way too bright with the 3528 strips.
