This next post might be considered a little off-topic. If that seems to be the case, please accept my apologies. I have included it because it completes the story of the various lines that intersected the Central Var metre-gauge line. Just like in the short post about the funicular there are videos to be watched ...... This is about the PLM branch-line between Cannes and Grasse.

Roger, why are the photographs stamped on the wrong side, if they are postcards, or is it a tax?

Hi Hereward

I am not sure about the reason why. The various French postcards I have photos of, if used, are invariably stamped on the picture side rather than the side we are used to. I have looked at quite a few different postcard selling sites in doing my research and this seems to be standard practice.

Best wishes

Roger

The next length of the line runs from Peymeinade to Tanneron. After the invasion in 1944 and the destruction which surrounded it, Tanneron became the eastern terminus of the line until closure in 1950:
