If each switch controls one light they are not in series.
If each switch controls more than one light, and the same number per
switch they MAY be in series. I would guess you have E10 base bulbs
(10mm edison screw base). Being round globes they are most likel #14
bulbs. Longer envelope would make them more likely #41 (which are also
usually .5 amp instead of .3 - or 1.2 watt instead of 0-.7 watt).
Commonly used in older equipment as "dial lights" and "pilot lights".
As for the power supply - if ANY are still lighting it is likely OK.
The shack bulb would likely work, but it is the #41 style, with the
power of the #14.
I want to thank everyone who offered helpful suggestions and advice. I
got started too late to get the dollhouse lights working so I just
finished fixing up the house itself. It was a big hit on Christmas
morning. When I get some time, I'll finish the lights. My plan is to
replace the transformer with a battery pack and use LED lights. I'll
probably have to replace the four toggle switches.
