    First thing to check...
    If your brakes are not fully released you may not be able to move at all so as a test make sure you're on level ground and then notch 1 the power. Check the ammeter to ensure you are actually generating motive power and if you don't slowly start to move then there is a problem.

    Do the same for notches 2 and 3.

    A lot of times I have this issue I am applying power before the whole train's brakes have released and it's not that the amps aren't there, but that I am being impatient and the brakes are still on somewhere
