There are many reasons why a model engine does not work especially on a model railway which has not been used for a while.

The first thing to do is to ensure that there is power at the rails and this can be done by using a small 12volt test lamp or test meter. You do of course have to turn on the controller. On more complicated tracks it is best to connect where the power leads connect to the tracks as some sections may be switched of due to the way points(switches) are set.

The locomotive my fail for many minor reasons and it will usually be necessary to remove the powered chassis from the engine or tender.

Things to check are continuity from the wheels to the brush gear. This may be more difficult on engines fitted with DCC as you will have so many connections to play with and indiscriminate
use of the test meter may damage the DCC chip.

It is possible that if you repeat your question giving the description of the model involved that some one can give specific instructions.
