There is an intermodal yard to the south and east as the line edges west, away from the ex-PRR line heading south, and then south again, past four through girder bridges over east-west streets, a track trailing in on the east side, six through girder bridges over east-west streets, the CTA bridging overhead on its steel trestle, a through girder bridge over an east-west street, signals, six through girder bridges over east-west streets, signals, and a bridge over an east-west street.
At the signal bridge at CP 74th Street (NS Junction/WI Junction) (MP8.2), the double-track former C&EI line continues straight ahead (south), while the double-track Orland Park line swings away to the west on the north leg of a wye, bridging over an east-west street within the north leg, and over two north-south street within the wye. As the line reaches the westward orientation, the double-track south leg of that wye trails in, paralleled by a double-track BRC line on the southwest side, for a total of four tracks, bridging over a north-south street.
The TC-controlled line edges a bit further south, bridging over another north-south street and passing a signal bridge, and joins the BRC line, which is edging a bit further north, where the whole drops to two tracks at Belt Junction (MP 9.2), continuing west, and splitting to four tracks again, but now with the double-track BRC line on the north side, passing signals, a bridge over a north-south street, someone's MP "518", and a bridge over a north-south street. At Forest Hill (MP 9.8), both lines make a flat crossing with the two-track north-south B&OCT (and the former crossing with the PRR Panhandle routing just to the east of the B&OCT), and a spur from the BRC crosses the NS on the flat, to run on the south side of the NS. There is an intermodal yard on the west side of the B&OCT.
The main BRC track continues due west as the NS (former Wabash) line then turns away southwest at the east end of the Landers Yard, where a west-to-southwest connector from the BRC (allowing the passage of trains to/from Clearing Yard on the BRC, west of this location) once trailed in on the northwest side, past a bridge over a north-south street, and a pair of tracks heading west-southwest into the yard on the south side of the single track through NS line. Landers Yard lies along the southeast side of the line, with a street alongside to the northwest, to its southwest end, where there are four tracks, a bridge over a north-south street, then five tracks reducing to two, and the Metra Wrightwood station (MP 10.8), a single platform on the north side with a brick depot on that side.
