Used: "I just purchased a used USA Trains 70mac"....

It's modified, take it apart, it could have been set up for DCC or battery, or just messed up and the board eliminated. Maybe the board is loose, but I doubt it.

If you are only running one or a few trains, it might not justify buying a DCC system. I'm kind of opposed to buying an "entry-level" DCC system, because the reasons they cost less is they have limitations or fewer features.

It always seems to be a bad idea, you seem to need the exact feature you gave up to save a few bucks!

Most DCC controllers will work on DC, and the P5 should also, so try it on DC yourself first... just a little voltage and see if it runs.
