Are you sure it blew the circuit board? That gets expensive!!!
The battery might be too low inside the engine or tender (if it is steam engine), try recharging the battery before doing anything else! Did an MTH factory trained repair shop diagnose the problem for you, or was it a non-MTH trained person?
Another problem I have run into when using command control, is this, a lighted caboose gave me some problems before I fiqured out it has shorted at the center rail pick-up assembly, it was smoking as it got that hot. What it did was give me problems when using the PS-2 engine in command mode, made me think that a circuit board could have been fried, as it would stop on it's own at times without any warning. Finally I run just the engine and tender and everything was fine, no problems at all. Check all your freight cars that are being used with that train and see what happens when you take each one off, one at a time.
