ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS
Posted by Stregulator on Saturday, April 14, 2018 4:04 PM

AFTER FOUR YEARS My trains have been in the closet. I set up the old track for new layout. I only have power on one section of the track. I checked the track and replace the track where the power stopped. I also clean the track. I'm using real track by MTH. I moved the power hook up to a different location which seem to give me about 3 feet more of track that worked. I can understand why I have no power in the majority of the track. Need help

Are you shure that all the rail joiners are connected?

So, this is "O" scale RealTrax ?  Maybe you didn't snap it together right.  They have a video on their web site, if you want to check it. The connection on these is pretty much bullet proof.

If your using HO scale, it looks like their track needs track joiners, like every other HO track needs, except maybe Bachmann EZtrack, or Kato.

MTH HO track that has the road bed included, does have the rail joiners.  If this is what your using, make sure the track joiners are tight.

By the way, welcome to the forums.

Mike.
