The pair of overlapping wye junctions at Baird (MP 58.9), north of Lincoln Depot, connect the freight and passenger lines coming north past and through the station to a UP line (and the stub of a CB&Q branch) heading northwest and then north (in the case of the continuing UP line), and to the main CB&Q line heading northeast, Two Main Tracks, CTC, with speed limit 79-60.The east end of the passenger wye passes beneath a road bridge overhead, with a second road bridge overhead east of the east apex, a pedestrian bridge overhead with a divided street alongside to the southeast, a road bridge overhead, and a bridge over drainage. The line passes shuttle-enabled rail-served grain elevators, CP 568 (MP 56.8), where a Chicago & Northwestern line once crossed at grade and residual spurs still trail in on the south side of the line, "Union Equity" grain silos on the southeast side, with two extra tracks on that side, a road bridge overhead, , another, smaller, grain silo on the southeast side, the extra tracks on that side trailing in, a bridge over a road, a rail-served plant on the southeast side, a bridge over a road, and crossovers at Havelock (MP 54.8), where there are spurs on the north side and yard tracks on the south side (with a maintenance building on that side).

There is a spur off to the southeast, to a large silo there, CP 535 (MP 53.5), a major highway alongside to the southeast, a grade crossing, Intermediate Signals near MP 50, a road bridge overhead, a 6,772 ft. siding at Waverly (MP 47.6), with two grade crossings within the siding, surrounding the "Waverly" station name sign, out in open fields, two grade crossings, Intermediate Signals at MP 45.4, a grade crossing, a bridge over a stream, a grade crossing, an old depot on the northeast side, grain silos to the southeast, crossovers at Greenwood (MP 42.1), where the line turns north-northeast, Intermediate Signals at MP 41.1, a dirt road grade crossing, a detector at MP 39.0, a grade crossing, a bridge over a creek, CP 364 (MP 36.4), where the speed limit drops to 50-40, a bridge over a road, and crossovers at Ashland (MP 35.3), where a line once trailed in from the northwest, and the main line splits three ways: north along the Platte River to Fremont, with a wye junction on the northwest side of the line, northeast  to Omaha (the passenger route), and southeast, along the Platte River, to Oreapolis and Pacific Junction (the main coal and freight route).
