Finding all links in a route

I am trying to do something which I thought would be fairly straightforward but cannot seem to figure it out. I am simply trying to identify all the links in the source feature class which make up the shortest route calculated by Network Analyst. i.e. link the route output to the polyline inputs along which it traverses. Is there an easy way to do this? There doesn't seem to be any common ID between the routes output and the traversal results which make them up.

I have tried searching the traversal result table for the link with the Accumulated cost the same as the Total cost for the route, but despite the figures looking the same in the table, a search by attribute doesn't give me back the link.

Surely I'm missing something here? This doesn't seem like an unusual task to me!

Any help is greatly appreciated,
