New MTH Loco not Running Well
      I do not have any MTH locomotives because of the proprietary operating system so I know little about them but your dcc problem can easily be caused by your feeder wires or lack of. The possible cause could be radio frequency interference.  It is easy to make and install a filter. This is caused by having an open circuit at the end of your feeder line. I soldier all of my joints which helps make the track a conductor too but the filter should be placed near the terminus of the main feeder wires. Here is a link to a schematic and a good explanation. RF Filter

     Some decoders are more susceptible than others and the circuit is a 100 ohm 1/2 watt resistor in series with a 0.1 ufd 50v ceramic capacitor. Cheap and easy.
