    Cant seem to get much info on this place so here is a bit of info about the company.

    February 29, the new SNCF CEO, Guillaume Pépy, received a letter from President Nicolas Sarkozy, setting out the objectives he was assigned during his two-year term. This document highlighted five key-schemes for SNCF future development. One of which definitely is the priority over the four others, and probably by far the most ambitious, will aim at making SNCF a European-wide (and even worldwide) logistics provider.
    After having been trying to reduce losses of its freight branch SNCF Fret, the French National Railway seems to opt for a much more aggressive strategy, mostly inspired by the Deutsche Bahn’s.

    One all know recent SNCF’s moves, the railway took over a small but nationwide German logistics provider Import Transport Logistik (ITL), which is supposed to widen up market prospects on the east side of Europe, and not later than a week ago SNCF announced it would buy the 57% shares of Geodis that it does not own, through an unexpected friendly take-over bid

    When will this stop? After ITL and Geodis, according to the RB-Borsen Danish Press Agency, SNCF would apprently be having a look at Danish logistics provider DSV (about €3.0 billion turnover, in 2007). DSV’s well-developed northern network would be of high interest for SNCF, with regards to its intention of becoming a European-sized logistics provider in the short term.

    From what i gather this place was some sort of depot for train's to load and unload???

    Like almost every building in France this place is full of Tags.
