Looking at Google maps, it looks like it probably went to Limoneria company along Cummings road. You can see a faint dirt trail curve near the plant.

I believe it sprouted from the tracks near a bridge before the Santa Paula Depot, and went along Grant Line St. and then paralleled Cliff Dr. But, then again, I am not sure because it ends at the river. Also, you can see a line in between the trees between those areas.

Also, I think you are right on the thought of the branch being the one with the dirt, because I have been there, and saw some rails, paralleling each other and mostly buried in the road, and there were no pavement marks. Only a small crack.
