I 've read most ofthe topics here. There is a huge amount of information for Salonika Front but Ihaven 't seen much about the railway lines that British, French, Serbians, adthe Germans had built in order to facilitate the transportation with the trenchs.
As far as I know the British Army had built a normal line (143 cm) fromSalamanli (now Galliko) to Giouvesna (Assiros) . The line continued from Giouvesnato Sarakli (now Iraklia). From there, there was a 60 cm. railway line toStavros and Tazli Dermend (Orfanos Gulf) which was used as a normal railway linetill the end of WWII.
Other 60 cm. lines were built from Ligovani to Mirovi and from Kopriva (nowHimarros) to Dimitrici and Gudeli (Vamvakussa) just behind the Struma valleyfront. There was also a 60 cm line from Vetrina (Neo Petritsi) to Rupel fort(now Klidi).
Near Vardar valley a 60 cm line was built by the British Army from Sarigiol(now Kristoni near Kilkis) to Snevce (32,6 Km) and from Snevce to Karmoudli(3,85 Km), another one from Sarigiol to Yanes (now Metallikon). British Armyhad also built a 60 cm line from Mirovo to Lingovani (now Xiloupolis).
Karasouli(Polykastron) was a central transport center. The Allies had built a 60 cm linefrom Karasouli to Orehovica (now Pefkodasos). Another line was built from Karasoulito Boemica (Axioupolis) and Koupa.
The most well knownline, built by the Serbian Army was that from Vertekop (Skydra to Subotcko(Aridea) 28,9 km total.
Contrary to that therailway line that was built by French from Mesonisi to Florina and Armensko (Alona) and to Pisoderi isnot well known. From Mesonisi to Armensko there was a normal 60 cm line andfrom there to Pisoderi the line was aerial. These are the only information wehave for that line. We don ‘t have photographs, or a map of the line.
I would be verygrateful to anyone that has more information or photographs for this line.
