Aha! Just a map error. The map shows this branch down near Palmdale near the Soledad Canyon Line, but the abandoned Lake Side Branch was a spur off the still-active "SanJac" line. Sorry for the confusion!

I remember seeing this in the early 1970's where it crossed US 395, and always wondering where it went. The crossing and signals were still intact at that time. Everything was removed a few years later when US 395 was converted to a freeway, I 215. I had no idea that the line was that old, the crossing signals looked more modern, at least 1960's style.
