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 like you have eliminated the motor as the problem. Try cleaning all of the electrical contacts including the connections between rail sections and the hot rail with fine steel wool (make sure you clean up all of the remaining steel wool bits since they are conductive). If that doesn't work, look at the transformer output.

Yes it can be fixed. Does the transmitter work? I am asking if other cars and the locomotive respond to the transmitter ECU-1. The dump car is a little different from the other cars as you need to hold the button down for several seconds to get it to dump momentatrily to uncouple. There is a thermostatic time delay as part of this car's receiver.<br /> Look it up in the old Lionel Service manual (original or Greenberg reprint) or the Greenberg operating guide (small thick hardbound book)<br /> <br /> Ed

If you have a volt meter you can check the rails for power, Check the transformer wiring to the first rail connection and then along the rails for loss loose connection(s). If you have power to the rails it is an issue with the Engine, Check any brush or rail riders (connections) for a bent or broken tab. If for a temp fix in a broken connection tab or brush you can use Tin foil. Hope this helps.
