Mason, years ago another company, perhaps Fleishmann, sold an electric
that was very similar to the N&W's and they were 2-rail DC. I purchased
a couple of them to consider conversion, but never got around to doing
it... life got in the way! Anyway, somewhere in storage I have those
units and if I ever dig them out I will post photos.
