Eagle Mountain Railroad (EMRR) was a private 51 mile long railroad owned by Kaiser Steel which was used from 1948-1986 to move iron ore from the Eagle Mountain Mine in Riverside County to an interchange with the Southern Pacific Railroad. It is currently owned by Kaiser Steel's successor, Kaiser Ventures. This railroad bridge is where the line crosses the Bradshaw Trail in the Sonoran Desert.
