I think you just have something in that inner loop wired backwards. It's easy to make a mistake working underneath the layout.

Referring to the track diagram in post 1:

I'd start by REMOVING the connections from the "spur track" in the red area.

Does that change anything?

If not, I'd remove ALL the other connections in the red area.

Does that change anything? Do trains run now?

If that works, I'd just "leave it be".

As has been mentioned, you have that layout wired
correctly. The Insulfrog turnouts do not require
insulated joiners...I'm afraid my friend, Tractionfan,
was thinking of Electrofrog turnouts which do require
them in the frog rails.

The reason Electrofrogs need insulated joiners is that
the frog phase changes when points are moved. Without
the insulated joiners you would have a short circuit.
