Where's the Rox/Dot line around there?

I always kinda placed it roughly around Magnolia Street. Really, coming out of Uphams Corner on Dudley, as soon as we go under the T bridge, it feels like we're in Roxbury. But I always spotted Dot a block or so past the tracks, just to cover things. But are you saying that Dot goes into Brunswick-King? Sure feels like Roxbury over there. But I'm not originally from around there, so I don't know what the real deal is.
