Start with a turnout (curved or straight).

do > blank up to switch toe (2)

CTRL+V

CTRL+N

CTRL+X

do > blank up to switch toe (2)

CTRL+F6 mouse action.

Slide the template until the blade tips on one clear the check rails on the other.


CTRL+V
 
Over to you to sort out the timbering. :)

Above is for 091c.

regards,

Martin.

To be a proper Barry Slip the Vees should line up as if it were a normal diamond.  So add a length of straight to one of the diverging roads, extend it backwards and then slide the second turnout so that its diverging road coincides with the extend straight.

Another way to do that would be to start with a diamond-crossing.

Then change each half-diamond to a turnout.

On each one, increase the crossing entry straight ( action > mouse actions: real > adjust V-crossing entry straight menu item) to reduce the lead length until the switch tips clear the opposite check rails. Put the peg on CTRL-6 first. On a 1:6 Barry slip, change to A switches rather than B.

Operationally there is no reason for the crossings to line up. It would be the case only where a Barry slip was used as a renewal for a previous full double slip.

regards,

Martin.

p.s. Richard,

Your Barry slip has the switch blades opening in the knuckle and behind the check rails. :(

Your slip road appears to be a little out, it simply repeating the diamond route at present. Easy mistake to make.

regards
