Reads as though you have over come the points natural self isolating by fitting droppers to the siding rails after the point.
Remove droppers for that siding or fit an isolating switch into one feed wire going to the siding should return the status quo!

Then fit On/Off switches into each line (Track) that needs isolating. Dont forget you also need Insulated Rail Joiners (IRJs) in each tracks rails at both ends to ensure electrical isolation.
