Thanks to those that replied!  I figured out the problem... I had a bad piece of track that was shorted out. Once I replaced it everything worked fine. this three loop elevated track has a passenger train for tourists to ride and view the rest of the layout. The tourists love to take pictures of the beautiful scenery, (vivid imagination). This EL train has to go slowly to allow good pictures, LOL. Actually it was a good way to add a sixth line to my layout.
 My layout shows the village of "Iron Mountain" and the cliffs/ mountains around. There is a simulated waterfall too. The mayor of Iron Mountain decided that an elevated track with a classic steamer and observation car would attract tourists to town to spend money, and it worked. The town is thriving. There is a coal train from the mine, a crude train from the oil wells in the area, a couple of standard freight trains, and the circus is in town with their train/tents etc. So come to Iron Mountain there is lots to see and do.

I have a figure 8 of ez track and I got another cross and tried to make another loop. sort of a three circled 8, and now the train doesn't run. I have only one power source to the track. do I need another power connection? Is it ok to connect the same transformer to the same track with multiple wires?
