ok ,,my kato throttle/power supply i think fried , it came with the basic starter set , i got a amtrak DCC engine and running on DC kato power supply ,,could this be the reason my power supply died ? and is the MRC 1276 Tech 7 AMPAC 760 Train Control with Momentum a better upgrade ?

i think i found the problem ,,it seems kato track doesnt like paint thinner ,,i had some paint my tracks and decided to clean the tracks first with some paint thinner , then go over it with goo gone ,,well the paint thiner actually faded the color of the kato ballast , i replaced those tracks with some newer ones i had lying around ,,,and behold i have power !!

also do to my loss of power cause of the paint thinner , i had put up a total of 4 power connectors to my powerpack ,,i also think this is another reason my powerpack was overheating ,,im only using the 1 power connector now ,,everything working perfect ,
