Paris 'Gare Montparnasse' train station has been operating since the middle of the 19th century and its immediate success meant that to cope with increasing passenger numbers they had to add a second station during its first decade of operation. This Paris station is the main terminus for lines serving the west and south west of France, with destinations including Brest, Quimper and St Malo, Tours (Val de Loire), Chatellerault,
Poitiers, La Rochelle and Toulouse.
