  1. Not certain, Dana, but I think you got your wires crossed. It seemed that the engine was running in the opposite direction of the controller. Otherwise, a good set for a starter.

  2. With Bachmann EasyTrack, the rerailer section has a connection for the plug from the speed controller (I use that because both the DC and DCC controllers) can be hooked up to the track only one way; so depending on which side you plug in to, determines which rail is plus or minus in DC or Rail A or Rail B (using the DCC convention)

    To fix the problem, simply plug into the rerailer section on the other side OR turn your train around. Please note: I do not know which rail is connected to which pin in the plug, so the solution could be as easy as turning the rerailer section around 180 degrees.
