I have drawn this out and it looks cool but I am not sure it can be done. Is it possible to have turnouts off of a curve? The one I see are all straight track pieces. Thanks for any input

Yes. Walthers sells them under the Walthers name. They are made by Shinohara. Very good quality and pretty affordable.

All of my switches are Walthers. I had trouble derailing at the frog with Atlas switches. Tried my voo-doo....nothing worked. Changed to Walthers after visiting a club that used them and that convinced me.

Are the Shinohara turnouts available in the same size as the Atlas?
Do they available in Code 100?
