From Facebook: "How to get the supplies most efficiently to the thousands of men fighting in the trenches? As WWI progressed, trench railways became the primary means of moving men and supplies to the front lines. Trench railways were often portable and light, using narrow gauge systems that could quickly be assembled by unskilled labourers and soldiers."
What a photo. Thanks !!
