Talus was a station along the Southern Pacific's Lone Pine or "Jawbone" Branch, built between 1908 and 1910 to connect the SP owned Nevada & California Railway with their main line at Mojave and to provide transportation for workers and supplies during construction of the Los Angeles Aqueduct. The line was abandoned in 1981 and rails were removed about 1999. A solitary cement structure with two compartments stands at the site, but I don't know if it was related to the railroad, the aqueduct, or the nearby highway stop of Dunmovin.
