Double beam headlights ?

The reason I asked this question is that on the front cover of Dixon's new
book that was just released is an illustration of the N&W J 604 by Robert
West with a double headlight. It just strikes me funny that a book is
printed about the history of the N&W Powhatan Arrow and the cover isn't
historically correct. Just an observation.

Did the N&W steam, particularly the J's ever have a double beam headlight in
the 50's?
