Try a volt meter from U and the other on A. With the throtle lever moved , you should get a reading. If not, transformer problems. If yu got voltage there, trace yur wiring and connections to track. Then put volt meter on center rail and the outside rail you have the U post connected. Should get voltage there. If you do, you have got train problems.
