I have heard several stories of damaged Atlas turnouts when folks try to remove them from the styrofoam. I have gone through a lot of these and thought to share this.
A little something I do is to hold the styrofoam tray up right and slightly flex the point end of the tray down to lightly release pressure of the packaging from the rail ends and lift the point end of the switch straight up.
I do not try to lift the diverging track end up first!
Of course the caveman approach is to break the foam apart.
