This is the remaining portion of the Jefferson Street Branch line (see http://deadhorsetimes.blogspot.com/2010/05/jefferson-street-line.html), and is still in operation--it is being considered for conversion to transit use.

The SP tried to abandon it, but abandoned the abandonment when a group of local governments bought the ROW instead.
