I just laid my last piece of track on my layout turned on the power, put my 44 tonner on the track and nothing. Total track in layout is 60 ft, with a couple of reverse loops. I was using a small Bachmann HO transformer that had worked fine for testing during assembly. I had the engine sitting right over the terminal joiners supplying power but it only moved about 1 in then stopped. put a meter on the rails and they seemed o.k.but none of the three locos I tried would run. There seemed to be a little less power down the line and I have not installed my bus line yet, but these were right at he point of power input and I thought they should have run until power dropped off, farther down the line. Can't be the locos cause they worked fine on my test track afterwards. My connections to the power were fine and I got good readings where the power entered the track. Been away for about ten years and can't figure this out. HELP.
