Hi, hope someone can help.  I just changed the power cord to the LW transformer that has not been used in 25 years. When plugged in all seems ok, move throttle light gets bright. 
As soon as I connect to fastrack (hardwired) transformer goes on and off, . I ha e included a quick video to show what happens.
You can see and hear light/transformer, and breaker go on and off.
All other wiring looks good.
The transformer acts the same way when I disconnect from fastrack and test on a separate section of track.
Could it be a bad breaker?
Tanks for any help.
Pat

Ok, rookie mistake, 

I went back and looked at all the wiring ,the layout was for a lionchief set I just purchased for my grandson and I know I can't run older trains and lionchief.  The lionchief locomotive was off the tracks before I hooked up the LW transformer. The problem was the  lionchief wall transformer was unplugged BUT was still connected to the fastract power terminal  causing the breaker to pop on and off.

Thanks for the help everyone.

So after 25 years my 2025 is running again
