Will the power pickup be overhead wire or just track?


To my dismay, I have to stick with two rail pickup.

Seems DCC and overhead can't be combined. 

I understand when going through a return loop, there would be a problem,
as the loco then would pick up current from the wrong rail.


When I was a boy, I had a layout with a double track mainline and full operational overhead - miss this sorely.

However, in a real world I doubt I will ever finish my layout,
so thinking about erecting poles + catenary is moot.
