There was once an acute angled crossing with that erstwhile Houston & Texas Central line at the 6,343 ft. siding at Flynn (MP 168.5), after which the former r-o-w is on the east side, as the line passes a detector at MP 173.5 and jogs northwest, away from that other former r-o-w, turning north again past Concord, then northwest and north again to the junction (southeast and northeast quadrant connectors surrounding a flat crossing) with the UP (former MoPac) Hearne to Palestine line at Koch (MP 183.3), where it turns just west of due north, additional track at Nucor Steel (MP 183.8), the 6,115 ft. siding at Newby (MP 184.6), a turn just east of due north, a former crossing with that same erstwhile H&TC line, a turn just west of due north, additional track at HL&P (MP 191.0), a detector at MP 193.6, Donie, Freestone, Teague (MP 204.3), where there is a 30 mph speed restriction and an erstwhile T&BV line to Cleburne once headed west, Simsboro, a turn to the north, Kevin, a detector at MP 215.5, and the junction with the spur trailing in from the Texas Utilities Big Brown Power Plant, to the east, at BBRX Junction (MP 217.4).

The line turns just east of due north, using the routing of that former M-K-T line, past the flat crossing and junction with the UP (former H&TC) Ennis to Fort Worth line at UP Xing (MP 796.6), where BNSF trains headed for Fort Worth switch to that line, additional track at Armaglass (MP 794.6), additional track at Service (MP 793.5), the 6,252 ft. siding at Sterrett (MP 791.2), Red Oak (MP 788.2), Elva, the 3,932 ft. siding at Lancaster (MP 781.7), and just west of due north past Peeler, turning just north of due west, just west of due north again, and just east of due north, bridging over the Trinity River to the junction with the UP Dallas sub. at Forest Avenue (MP 769.3), where there is a 10 mph speed restriction on the junction to that line headed northwest.
