NOTES: This target is a probable underground store, served by the railway line running from PARIS to MERY-SUR-OISE. Spurs have been constructed on both east and west sides of this line a short distance north of the station. The western spur, which is very short, serves a dump of stores and leads through a shed. The eastern spur forms a siding, now camouflaged by overhead netting, and then runs into the Bois de la Muette. Further branch lines run into 3 tunnels, one to the south at 958660, where there is another dump of stores, and two to the north, on each side of the main line. Three ventilators are seen, between the tunnel entrance on the west of the line and the short spur. There is also a track, probably for a further length of rail, running eastward from the railway bridge, and curving southward at the east corner of the wood into a possible fourth tunnel entrance.
