This branch line was originally constructed in the 1880s. The branch left the SP main line at Bryn Mawr, also known as Redlands Jct. and headed north for about a mile, parallel to what is now California Ave. It then turned east, parallel to Citrus Ave. It then made a broad S-curve across Redlands Blvd. into downtown Redlands. Just east of downtown it ran parallel to the Santa Fe's Redlands Branch for a mile or so and then headed east to Crafton, where the SP line ended. Most customers were orange growers' packinghouses. The line was gradually cut back starting in the 1960s. By 1984, the tracks ended just past the Orange Ave. grade crossing in downtown Redlands, but the entire line appeared to be out of service by then. As of 2003, some parts of the right-of-way were still traceable. The area near Redlands Jct. is being graded for a housing development.
