Trix Big Boy #4011 won´t move.

According to the manual #4011 will run on both DC Analog and DC Digital. And has done so in the past. But suddenly it won´t move what so ever on Analog feed. No lights, no humming from the motor, absolutely dead. So, USA, let´s see if you can beat the European brains by presenting a solution.  ;D
Regards, kallaz.

Hammer.  :P

No, seriously. Check to make sure the CV value for dual mode is set properly. I don't know what Trix is using for CV values having not seen the manual. Sometimes the decoder is set at the factory at DCC only, giving you what seems like a dead DC locomotive. If something on the system recently had a spike, it could have reverted the decoder back to defaults.

Please explain the word "spike" to me.

Sorry,
Spike, or sudden increase in DCC/DC/or static electricity voltage.
