arcpy.Describe not working on network dataset

I am trying to use arcpy.Describe on the ESRI streets network dataset for US and Canada.

If I type:

import arcpy
file = <filename>
desc = arcpy.Describe(file)


It returns an error about the dataset not existing. I am guessing Network Datasets are treated as something special compared to FeatureClasses, etc.

How do I 'describe' a network dataset?

Regards,

Craig
