Slips Wanted

This is a superb piece of track engineering. The traditional 'station throat' pointwork, eminently suitable for a terminus with four platforms, as either approach track can service any of the four roads. It comprises a pair of opposing points, a crossover then two double-slips. All close-coupled and fitting within an 8-foot length yet having point radii of around 6m.

My regret is that I don't have a terminus station. What I do need are a couple of single (or double) slips, for feeds out of my through station.

I'd very happily swap this formation for a couple of slips, but I'm pretty certain that a couple of new slips with code 330 rail would cost more than I'd realize for this complete formation.

Regrettably, I think I'm going to have to butcher it to extract the two slips I need, unless anyone steps forward with a swap...
