Yeah that’s where I was thinking, precisely at the bottom edge of that X, practically next to the frogs.
But, if you want to swap the double slip for two straight sections, a sanding tower would maybe need to be between them.
It is redundant kinda, as far as access to the diesel shed. Technically you could probably relocate the turnout that leads to the RH bay to the double slip location and make it work.
But redundancies aside, it makes the yard tracks look busy and maze-like, and personally I think large yards being a spaghetti bowl both look more “serious” or traffic intensive and add to the navigating fun. But’s possibly controversial, and personal preference.

I forgot to snap a new picture with the removed double slip switch but I think I like it better without it... But I did test out the turntable with a DC power pack and it worked! I need to lube it up as it's a little loud. Also hooked up power to the track wires and tested a DC engine on it and it moved!
