The Desert Hills Branch

Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

This line served the Arden Plaster Mine (and was operated by that mining company) and connected to the Union Pacific line at Arden. Mine shipments along the line started in 1907. In 1919, the mine was purchased by the U.S. Gypsum Mining Company, who continued operations along the line until 1930.
