SOURCE: Lionel train power issue
Answer a number of questions:
Is the tranformer power adequate for the train and is it a working tranformer?
Will the train run by connecting the wires directly to the two points of the train (wheels and center rail connector)?
Are the tracks new?
Is the lockon new?

It sounds as though you may have two defective transformers. Lionel has reported problems with some of their smaller transformers. I would have the transformers and the engines checked by a Lionel service station or contact their customer service department for help.

Just wanted to add a note to this problem you are having....Question is this...How big is the train layout and how many power clips do you have on the track??
Reason is being if you only have one power clip for the whole track, you will notice a decrease (slowdown) of the train in certain area(s) so i would recommend adding another power clip or two to your layout, also If you are using old regular O track, make sure you have the metal pins in all 3 railsHope this helps
