Delete the slip roads and slip switches, so that you are back to a diamond-crossing.

Then change each half-diamond to a turnout: template > convert half-diamond to turnout menu item.

Put the peg on CTRL-6 before making any other changes, otherwise you will lose the alignment between the two diverging roads.

On a 1:6 Barry slip, change to A switches rather than B.

On each one, you may want to increase the crossing entry straight ( action > mouse actions: control/real > adjust V-crossing entry straight menu item, SHIFT+F11) to reduce the lead length until the switch tips clear the opposite check rails.

Some timber shoving will be needed. Try to preserve the timber positions under each switch.

Are you happy with that, or do you need a bit of video?

cheers,

Martin.
