Train Won't Run

I got a Bachmann DCC GP40 for Christmas and its been running great for a couple of weeks now, but after a seven day hiatus, I ran it for about twenty minutes then it broke down. The back light comes on, the front light does not work and the locomotive would not run forward or backward at all (there is also no sound coming from the motor.) The other DCC train ran great, but the GP 40 has completely stopped working. Please help!!!

Can you remove the shell to check inside to see any loose parts like wire or so? Is it under warranty to return it back?

I would be inclined to think a plug came out. Check all connections on the board.
