MODANE’S CROWDED GOOD YARDS
The importance of the station and marshalling yards at Modane, heavily bombed again during the night by the R.A.F., is seen in picture below.
The station is within a few hundred yards of the entrance to Mont Cenis tunnel, and is the main connecting link between Southern France and Italy.
It is probably through this tunnel that German forces in Italy are receiving reinforcements and supplies coming from France and the Low Countries.
