NI Blue 141?

071 maybe

2 locos running at the same time should not have been a problem unless you shorted your transformer/controller

Turn off all power and try to run 1 loco and see what happens

What controller are you using?, if it is a Hornby Trainset on you might of overloaded to Transformer as those transformers are rubbish and it may of not been aboe to take the 2 locos.

Cleanliness comes well before godliness in all aspects of model railway running. Is the track clean? Are the wheels clean? Try putting two wires direct to the wheels, rather than the track, to see if the pick ups (some or all) are working.

Try taking the body off, if you can, and put wires directly to the motor.

 It is all about trying to eliminate what  might be wrong, until you find the thing that is. Good hunting, and keep us appraised.
