DMU at Modane sidings

An Italian ALn 668, belonging to operator GTT, in the sidings of Modane station, located on the railway line Chambéry - Turin.

The railcar is leased to the company that is doing the works in the Fréjus tunnel, to transport the workers into the tunnel which is 13.6 km long. The works intend to enlarge the tunnel's profile to the gabarit B+ (P/C 45) from current A (P/C 30). The tunnel is entirely closed to trains for about 6 hours per day, and with only one track opened the rest of the day.
