Zavodskaya line (1916 - 1920s)
The line partially used old lines from the Sestroretsk spur line:
The line existed for only a brief period. After the Russian Revolution (1917), the Sestroretsk armory practically stopped production, and in the 1920s, there was a complication of relations between the USSR and Finland. The bridge was destroyed, and the line was disassembled.
