When Lionel re-issues a set such as the #2421, 22, 23, and 29 passenger cars, with the same number, is there any way to determine the new number from the old if you do not have that information, or a new car that may have that number stamped on the bottom? Of course the 6-XXXX does not work, and so far, have been able to find a listing in Greenberg's for the re-issue cars.

Yes, those are the correct car names and car numbers, and if your new stock number is correct, for some odd reason they are not in the 2021 Greenberg price guide, and also not in the back special car section. Any idea what the cars are worth individually?
Greenberg doesn't always list breakouts for items that are originally sold in a set.
The reissues of these cars, the cars listed by @bmoran4 above, came in a set with product number 6-31778. This is listed in the Greenberg guides.
BTW -- To find these together with their set number, but without prices, go to this link:
Thanks to @Larry Neal for the list.
