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.

Take care
