Modeling New Closest Facility:

I am familiar with running a New Closest Facility Analysis using Network Analysis in ArcMap, but am looking ot streamline the process in model builder.  Basically, I have 120 x,y locations (facilities), and a single incident.  I simply want to map the 20 closest facilities to that incidence.  This is rather easy in Network Analyst.  In ArcMap, steps include setting up a 'New Closest Facility' in Network Analyst, Loading the facilities and incident to appropriate layers, and 'Solve'.

My problem is modeling this.  I found the make facility layer tool, but it doesn't contain parameters to load facilities and my incident.  Thanks in advance for any help you may have.
Best, Mark
