Back then, we  thought about converting a plain two rail DC layout with overhead,
so it was possible to run two or even three trains simultaneously, the old traditional way. 

Train 1 uses both rails.
Train 2 uses left rail + wire.
Train 3 uses right rail + wire.


That will never work with 3 trains.

If say you apply power to train 1, then trains 2 and 3 will be connected in series,
and will start moving at half voltage in opposite directions.
