The role of this station is to distribute the current in all the depot at the time of the steam:
it transforms the medium voltage distributed by the National electric company into low voltage "220V/380V", many air lines left the top of the station by insulators to bring the current in all the depot and the appendices buildings like: station, hearth, etc...
These substations were built by the ETAT network in the western region, before the creation of the SNCF in 1938. They remained in the depots until the 1970s.

14 resin castings
2 photoetched brass boards for frames, railings, insulators
The 2 brass ladders are included in the kit
