Did it cross over the Cotton Belt tracks on a bridge?
Aerial photographs seem to indicate it did.

looking at aerial photos from 1952 the RR crossed NWHighway via a bridge
go to this website [www.historicaerials.com] type in Dallas Texas once the Dallas map comes up find the DNT and go north to where you see it cross NWHighway then click on the aerial tabs. select 1952 and you can zoom in to see the RR bridge

Nice!
I can now see NW highway went under the Cotton Belt tracks.
We used to cross those tracks at grade further south going to and from
Christ the King school circa 1963. Even Lovers Lane crossed at grade.

I think I spy Lobello's restaurant in the aerial view at NW Highway and Preston Rd.
When did that close down?
