The Baotou–Shenmu Railway leaves Baotou Railway Station and heads south towards Shenmu county in Shaanxi Province. After passing the Baotou West Railway Station, the Baotou Ring Railway circles around the city and has stops at various stations in Baotou.

In the Ningxia Autonomous Region, the line connects with three other railways. It connects to Pingluo–Rujigou Railway near the Huinong District. The Baoji–Zhongwei Railway and the Taiyuan-Zhongwei Railway join the Baotou–Lanzhou Railway at Zhongwei. Also at Gantang the line splits to form the Gantang–Wuwei Railway
